Its 'proper' not common name (which is what you used) Liverbirdain is Acer palmatium Taylor.

Wel they are all of Japanese origin, this one is, I assume, a cross created by Taylor and has been in cultivation 5 years. Most of the Japanese acers don't have fancy Japanese names. Checking 'Taylor' grows to about 10 foot in 10 years,s not a big acer.
