    It means that the name doesn't have much flair, it's not a really outstanding name, it doesn't glitter and shine and make you sit up and notice!

    You could have saved yourself the time by simply Googling "definition of pizzazz" and found this.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
