Whitepages names used racial slur for the meaning of my surname

148 of 168 Whitepages reviews

Can you imagine someone search for your phone number and having a derogatory racial slur posted as the meaning of your name ?It happened to me.

Whitepages names used racial slur for the meaning of my surname Izzo, saying it was a nickname from Sicilian izzu ‘slv..’ or directly from Latin aegyptius ‘Egyptian’, or from the same word in the sense ‘dark-skinned’. That isn't true very few Izzos live in Sicily, most live in Naples. The posted meaning is offensive and derogatory, there isn't a Sicilian word izzu, it's an Arabic name and means honor as in Mu izzu - the honorer. but that isn't the meaning of my surname.

Izzo is a varaition f either Ezzo, Rizzo or Obizzo.I asked them to remove the offensive and untrue meaning for the surname IZZO from the Whitepages name meaning section and nothing was done.

Did you get any results from them?
File a complaint with the BBB in Washington state. Also file a complaint with the Attorney General in Washington state. Also, a complaint with the FTC. Then we will all start a class action lawsuit.

Thanks for the advice. They contacted me and the Whitepages apparently doesn't care what is posted in their NAMES meaning add on - why does the Whitepages want people who are searching for other people's phone number to know what the 2003 Dictionary of American Family Names by Oxford University Press UK thinks the meaning of that name means ? They said I should contact Oxford Press and I did and given no historical references. It seems political ..I wrote both of these groups and informed them several people named Izzo in Italy are government prosecutors there and since the family names Rizzo, Aizzo, Erizzo and Obizzo have a completely different meaning given for Izzo, something is going on here. I recently found a 1551 document about a Ezzo king of Corsica and Gallaria, related to Azzone and Ezzelino of Rome.
