In LH’s (unsolicited)defense, when I googled luvvie the first four pages of hits were about a Nigerian woman whose first name is Luvvie. The first reference to the British slang term was mid-way down page five.

That’s strange. If I google it, or any other word, I get a dictionary definition at the top.

Everyone’s Google experience will vary. What you get depends on what you’ve searched and surfed before and where you are.

My top hits:

1) a selection of Luvvie Ajayi’s tweets
2) Luvvie Ajayi’s website
3) Another of Luvvie Ajayi’s website
4) a selection of news stories that mention Luvvie Ajayi
5) Luvvie Ajayi’s Facebook page
6) Oxford Dictionaries: “luvvie”
7) Wikipedia: Luvvie Ajayi
8) Wikipedia: “luvvie” disambiguation page
9) Amazon: Luvvie Ajayi’s book
10) Wiktionary: “luvvie”

I, too, get the dictionary definition right at the top.

If you google a word you only have to type the first or second letters of definition, meaning or dictionary after. Any will work. I suspect LH knows this.
