    Wouldn't that be a D minor chord?

    I'm bad at music theory, so someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Looking at the alternative suggestions shown there:

    D minor is fine

    F6/D is technically correct, but I can't offhand think of a context where that would be preferred to Dm

    Asus4#5/D is just, well, insane. This is a perfect example of how those chord finder sites are all very well, but don't have any common sense. No one, ever, would use that name for that chord.

    :)
