Why is this site called Gossip Girl?

We’ve always had the impression that Gossip Girls was the name of a cartoon about a girl who loves to gossip.

But it turns out the name is actually derived from the German word for gossip.

Gossip-girl.com is not the only one using the word to describe gossip.

On the site, the word “gossip” is spelled differently depending on the context.

It’s not “golfer,” it’s “gopro.”

The Gossip Gossip is not a Gossip, it’s a Gopro.
