What i really would like in this game would be that names could be unrestricted and just make the family name unique. I mean i know a few people with the same name in real life so why would that be an issue in game? 

because some of us spent hard work prepping and spamming that name reserve button as early loyal consumers inbetween page-down-not-loading

Hmm that not really a great argument for having unique name, since you still would have your unique family name. I rather see a few people with the same name than xxxmurciablablablaxxx because every normal name has been taken xD

Hi im new to gaming and my other half suggested i play black desert online so i decided to give it ago whille hes at work you know so the constant no your doing it wrong is out of the way haha but im having a problem choosing a name every one iv entered is taken and its just making me think if all games are like this i went for my own name to begine with but that was taken so went with maiden name luckily its not taken but all the first names i can think of are taken i was born in japan but moved to england very early in life so my name is japanese and id like to stick with that for a character but my god its hard to find one that isnt used xD

 

anyone suggest any tricks or tips when using a name?

Let me give you my secret, there's no chance any of these names don't work:
Tons of japanese names and more

I'm pretty picky with the names of my characters, so that site helped me a lot, hope it does to you too ^^

I dunno, personally my family name is MacMaw and everyone is named Maw-. Mawurai (Blader), Mawrock (Zerker), Mawnobi (ninja), Mawceror (wizard). Don't blow your minds with how great those names are.

they're not.

I don't know if it works on BDO (haven't gotten to the point I needed, really)  so this info isn't very useful here if it doesn't, but it may help you or someone else in other games where it does work. Use '
It's barely noticeable and it let's you do a number of things with the name. Usually you can not start the name with it, but you can use it in the middle or the end. For instance, if you wanted Izumi you could try Izumi', I'zumi. Izu'mi, Iz'umi, etc, etc....
The odds that they are all taken are slim.
Another option is trying to make it look more or less the same with other letters: Itzumi, Ihzumi, Izumhi, etc...

May not be an option if it ruins the name you want or if in your language it gets considerably different.

Some games allow any name, by using the "family" or account name as the unique ID. Not this one, though.

I don't know if anybody said already because I didn't have time to read through all the replies but thought id mention that yes this is a pretty common problem in many MMO's. Some games sometimes open up/free all the names of players that haven't played in the last X years. Some use first names and last names but only make the last names unique so that everyone can share character names. Some just have unique id/number tags where you can have the same name. Others games don't do anything and you spend more time scrolling through name websites on google then actually playing the game!!!

So be assured that we've all probably been there at some point, and shared your pain! lol xD
