Names - Aetolia Online Help

4.1 Names

In the realm of Aetolia, we encourage you to put some thought into your 
name, and avoid the embarrassment that comes later when your peers have 
a good giggle at your expense. We realize sometimes it's hard to think  
of a good name, so we have written the following as a simple guide!     

Good Names
--------------------
 - Good names are those that you've created on your own. Unique 
   names that you've never seen before anywhere else.

Acceptable Names
--------------------
 - Acceptable names are those that you may have heard in real 
   life. Names such as Susan, Henry and so on.

Unacceptable Names
--------------------
 - Those names that we ask you to avoid are ones you may find in 
   any historical context, or ones you will find in a book or 
   anime. Other unacceptable names are those that are made of 
   compound words, such as 'Evilbloodsucker'.

 - In addition, names that are cursewords, racial slurs or 
   otherwise offensive names. Names that are completely 
   unpronounceable such as 'Xqtzrl' will also result in you being
   requested to change your name.
  
Whilst we realize that sometimes poor names will get through, this is   
not an acceptable reason for refusing to change your name. If you are   
asked to by a guide, Celani or Divine, it is expected that you will do  
so.                                                                     

Choosing an imaginative and acceptable name will greatly increase your  
experiences within the realm, and you will find your peers will have    
much more time for you.                                                 

If, after reading this, you wish to change your name, HELP NAMECHANGE   
will explain the way in which to do it.
