4.21 NAMES

(For giving a name to a loyal animal or other creature, see HELP NAME)

Why We Care About Names
------------------
Mostly, we don't. But, some names are either offensive, don't fit in the
environment, or don't really sound like names. These, we try to keep out of our
world for the sake of maintaining the fantasy feel of it.

Unacceptable Names
------------------
- Overly silly names (Bunnyknickers, Eepeepeep).
- Offensive or obscene names.
- Any 'sensitive' names from modern religions (Jesus, Mohammed) 
- Names that don't sound like names (Thegreatone, Xkillerx, Llpptriii)
- Names that don't fit in a fantasy environment (Microsoft, Laser, Bieber)
- Very famous names from other fantasy worlds (Gandalf, Goku, Lestat, Zelda)
- Very famous names of real-life people, current or historical (Lincoln,
  Einstein)
- Names that contain or are a common title or honorific. (Kingbob, Mrpeepers)

If You Decide To Change
-----------------------
The command is NAMECHANGE <newname>, for example

   NAMECHANGE idranuliar

For a bit more detail, see HELP NAMECHANGE. No, you can't really use
'Idranuliar' - it's just an example!

What About Houses?
------------------
Houses are generally free from immortal oversight or intervention. On the
subject of names, their policies may be no more restrictive than these.
