Dont know their policy on this, but in WoW i experienced that they had a timer once you deleted a char,, i deleted a char on 1 account, i could not use the name on 2nd account, took an hour i think before i could reuse it.

I'd like to know as well, though I'm guessing the name will only be reserved for a brief period of time as it is in most MMO's. I've heard of situations where names took ages to be released for reuse by anyone including the account that the name was on before, which is very annoying when it happens.

What I tend to do is create a bunch of random placeholder characters with the names I want. Then later, when I have more time, I mess around with the customization options and write down the position of the sliders (very easy thanks to the numbers on each slider in TOR) I want to use for each character and only after that I delete the placeholders and really quickly replace them with the finalized character and hope there's no major delay between character deletion and the name becoming available to me again.
