Any possibilities to use family name in chat AS AN OPTION?

I know this topic might be discussed for many times on the forum, but for someone like me who don't always play only one class consistently this is kind of an issue.

When I entered the game for the first time, I saw family name and I was thinking well this is pretty nice people in my guild can easily recognize me when I'm talking from different characters - I am a lazy person, so I made my family name that I really want to use, and then for all my characters I would use a name generator to come up with a name that I'm okay with. 

It seems like there's no specific reason why Kakao don't make it as an option because both Family name and character name are unique registered, so is it possible (it's already been a year since game launched in NA so I don't keep my expectations high) that they would add some features to suit more players style?

I agree it'd be nice to have a toggle feature for seeing Family names in guild chat at the very least.

I'm even okay with it if it's not a toggle, just give me an option of choice for once and I'll be happy...

Mhm! An option to let us turn it on would be nice. I kind of understand why we might want to not have it out in channel chat for pvp shenanigan reasons but surely our guildmates should be able to see who we are.

Yeah, sometimes I am swapping characters a lot and having 7 different names in chat is confusing.

I had to repeatedly mention who I am in the guild which is pretty silly, especially since we are now a large guild with 70+people

This would be great it's really difficult to recognise who is who with all those different characters. Family names in guild chat would make it much easier and simpler.

I actually thought our family name would be the main way of contact as well.
