Limiting the amount of letters in names is a stupid idea.

In a game with such an expansive and advanced character creation system, why is there a limit on something so redundant and weird as using the same letter in a name multiple times? Think of it this way; You can edit the shape of the PUPILS IN YOUR EYES but you can't name your character Penelope. And while we're at it, why restrict how many people can be called the same thing? It doesn't make any sense! Why have the family name thing that's supposed to make you special when your name also does that. Plus, the game's gonna be full of people with intensely bad names after a while.

Well we have Jesus Christ and Barrack Obama so not sure why Penelope is blocked. Overly strict filter I guess.

Names have to be unique because the family/account name works in an almost secondary fashion. You can't PM people with their family name for example. You use their character name. They aren't going to change this either.

I really don't like the "more than 2 letters in a name" rule, and how spaces don't exist.

Is it more than 2 letters in a name, or more than 2 letters sequentially?

I hate that you can use underscores personally. But others will disagree.

Letters can only be used 2 times, consecutively. (ex: XxJohn)

 this means you can't call yourself XxxWhatever or Zzzwhatever.
Penelope should be working, if it doesn't, i suggest you send a bug report, unless the error message you got, was that you name is already taken

Thanks Shadonic, that makes sense to me because at least to my knowledge in English you never have the same character three times in a row.

@Luciferia

I agree... I hate undescores numbers and overused capitals, capitals should be only at the beginning of a name

Looks really unprofessional/childish
