Why Geisha is now Panda

    You'll never be able to please everyone, everywhere, with your products—but if there is a more appropriate route to go, it would probably be wise to take that route. That being said, I highly doubt that you didn't use it before due only to the extension's name, ESPECIALLY when it was clear that there was no malicious intent or connotation behind the use of the name Geisha. Look up the late 19th century origin of the word:

    Japanese 'entertainer', from gei 'performing arts' + sha 'person'

    The negativity spawns from what others have imposed on the term through cultural appropriation and their own ignorance.
