Hi,
The quote is from the story "Morlvera" by H. H. Munro.

I could not find a proper meaning for the word "according".

Thank you.


The Olympic Toy Emporium occupied a conspicuous frontage in an important West End street. It was happily named Toy Emporium, because one would never have dreamed of according it the familiar and yet pulse-quickening name of toyshop.

    So "according it" is "giving name" ?

    The Olympic Toy Emporium is a familiar and yet pulse-quickening name?
