少女 used to have reading おとめ

Huh. I can’t say I recall that, but there’s other threads here mentioning it too, so I guess I’m just inobservant.

The only time 少女 gets mentioned in the update notes is September 25 last year, but the only changes listed are “moved “little girl” and “maiden” to allow list, added “young woman” to allow list, and updated meaning explanation”.

おとめ is more typically the reading for 乙女 anyway. This actually got raised in another thread back in April 2019.
