Seriously, Sprgmr is invalid? Did you guys really think to block that? Or is that something decided by your "bad name" algorithm? Please, I have it as Jalte for now, but could I change it to what I would prefer?

Might be because it looks like gibberish...
As of right now, i'm rash free.

If you read the naming policy, you would see that it states gibberish is against the rules.
It's a trap!

Name is invalid as it has no vowels. I got same problem with them not letting me use Y as a vowel.
I'm busy. Can I ignore you another time?

It could be that 'prgmr' is on a block list. It looks like it could be seen as shorthand for programmer. It's probably their way of trying to prevent people from imitating developer titles and the like.
