Simple solution is to be more creative. No one cares that you want to be the 1000th version of Ohbeonekanohbee or Hungsolow.

Originality is not the issue. I have original names I've used for 10+ years of gaming and RP that others apparently also use that happen to get them first, or with server merges ended up getting to keep theirs because mine was an alt I hadn't gotten around to playing yet. I still have two names I've not managed to get back even with the name free-up they did in November.

Problem completely solved if they based it on our account name instead then we could have whatever names we want. I agree w/ surname not being legacy name too, not all my characters are related it'd be nice to be able to display their surnames not the legacy as a surname.

ok i understand that there are NPCs with certain names.

but here is something to chew on....in any kind of logical world of sentient beings there will always be someone who thinks of the same crud you do.
i find it hard to believe there is only one person named Revan or Luke or Han or Greedo or whomever in the entirety of the star wars universe.

I'm all for this as long as they hit everybody with XXXIpwnNoobsXXX or equivalent on RP servers first and force them to use normal names instead of their gamertag
