My name reservation and the Archer I created. I played around with the
character creation for a couple of days and finally decided to play as an
Archer. To me it seems like a fun class to play + I can identify most with
their appearance.

The current naming system is, imo, a bit of a mess.  Based on what people have seen on the Korean servers (of course its subject to change), your char name is what shows up in chat.  Based on that, it would be reasonable to conclude that char name is your primary identifier and family name just groups your chars together.

However, if you look at the guild roster UI, it sorts by family name.  If the player is logged in it shows their char name otherwise it just shows "-".  This means you can't just use char name as your primary identifier because its useless when guild leadership is trying to go through and review the roster and see who's in the guild (for purposes of culling say, if the limit is reached and they need to decide who to keep in, etc).

The naming system appears to be thrown together without looking across multiple systems and thinking about players identifying themselves to other players and within a guild structure.  If you're going to go with char name as the player's identity then the guild roster should be based on that.  Of course, what to do if multiple chars on an account?  That is a problem which is why they probably chose to show family name.

Problem is, if everyone in your guild knows you by char name its going to be a pain to manage the guild roster.  UNLESS, you pick the same name, which people know you by, for family and char names.  Doing that seems to be the only reliable way to identify yourself both in chat, in your name plate / user frame, and in the guild roster.  Of course that doesn't look great because it redundant.

Just seems more thought needs to be put into naming.  Perhaps its too late with name reservations already done.  But at this point I'm pretty much forced to pick the same name for family and char.

Is there no way to simply reset only one of my reserved names? I want to reset just the family name...

Will I be able to quickly reset my names then pick the same character name IF no one has picked it up? I would assume yes but I am not sure if there will be a delay before I can pick up my Char Name again...

I had this feeling that "Lightning" will be a popular pick. Probably all of the Final Fantasy character names are taken by now.
