Django — Django Admin Model Name Override / Verbose Name

Since so much admin functionality has moved to AdminSite, I couldn’t find the answer to this very easily on google searches.

Despite the move towards towards ModelAdmin for admin-specific stuff, verbose_name’s are still defined in your Model.

Add the following to your models Meta class.

class Meta:
    verbose_name = "foo"
    verbose_name_plural = "foobars" 

to avoid names like Entrys.
