Fear of loseing a name

its looks like a number of euro servers have the same destination sever. If say my server (the paragus mining facility) is one of the last severs to have transfers and is going to the same destiation server as the previous servers. I have a strong feeling most of the names i have chosen for my characters (and thos i have in reserve) will be already taken or quite possibly get ninja'ed as soon as my server is in the transfer update. The fear that i will have to take a name like sample101 or sp00n is extremely depressing . The whole reason i pre orderd was to get a name that i really wanted (<----thats why its a big deal to me) and i chose a path in game that typified the name so its a huge part of that charicters identity.

Just wonderd if anyone has had this problem already or if anyone shared my fear. Also would like to read entertaing trolls about this subject

Easy solution. Go to those destination servers and try making characters with those names yourself. Then you can be sure you reserve the ones you can, and are aware of the ones you can't... all before you ever transfer.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

What's the big deal, it's a name, just find another name or use alt codes .

Your name will be the same just with a cool symbol, no biggie.

^This is a good idea

Also, even if you can't secure the names you have now, you should be able to get something better than Spoon

Well as I stated in another name thread. BW should have done things a little different. The person keeping the name when transferring to a new server should be the one that has had the name the longest. If you created the toon just in the last minute to grab someone elses name you should not be allowed to keep it verses the account that has had the name since day one in early access.

You can use any possible alt+number letters so Bastila can be Bàstila or Båstila or Bâstila. They can't all be taken.
Or you can put it on the 2nd a or both.

On a different game I lost a name I had forever and I sent a level 6 character that hadn't logged on in YEARS a bucket of money by mistake. So I understand the pain, maybe even more than most. But I'd rather pick another name than be myself on an empty server.
