Just wondering if I type a 2 or more word name into HoM and it doesn't show up that means its not taken correct?

Correct, but also doesn't mean it's reserved though. Meaning my gw1 names are on HoM calculator but they aren't reserved.

Yes, correct.

Even if it shows up, it doesn't mean it is taken, as it even shows Gw1 accounts that didn't link to Gw2 or log in between 1st january and 31st july.

I'm actually not sure... but I typed "Legolas" just to make sure and it said the name was available. I don't believe that for one second. :P

No one word names are reserved yet. GW1 didn't have them.

You cannot use 1 word names in gw1 that's why..
You have to use names that exist in Guild Wars 1 for the HoM to work.

No one can have that name in GW1, because you were required to use a two-part name.  When GW2 launches, Legolas will be available for the first person to get to it.

Yeah and trust us, there's like over 100000 people wanting that name.

Yeah, but my GW1 character name didn't work either. Is it because I haven't logged on in years? Also, does this mean I won't get anything from HoM even though I finished all three first campaigns (didn't touch EotN)? :(

Ah well. It makes me happy that 1-word names aren't taken yet. I was hoping for a specific 1-word name for GW2.

Also, just because it gets the error doesn't mean it's not reserved - all you had to do is register the name in GW1 (and play between the time frame) to reserve it; you didn't need to have eotn or a HoM, so not all reserved names show up.

Exactly. You must have logged between a certain date and july 31 to get your character "guaranteed"
and if you didn't touch EotN you won't have a HoM (after all, HoM IS on EotN. at the very beggining, but it's there)

Darn. Oh well. I'll just pick up EotN later. Does HoM see what you've accomplished long after you've already done them?

you have to dedicate everything manually, HoM is not automatic.
For instance, if you got a certain title, you have to go to the specific monument and interact with it, select the title and then dedicate. only then it will count for your HoM

To be honest, you shouldn't get eotn unless you really have did alot. If you really wanted to get eotn, then you should get it immediately, because i heard that you cannot benefit from the hom after gw2 launches.
You should take a look at the HoM Reward Calculator and see what you have done, check my name if you want
http://hom.guildwars...AAAARGEIQAAAAAA

Check and see if you have minipets, heroes (with their hero armors), rare pets(level 20), statues, prestige armor , HoM-able weapons(destroyer, tormented, oppressor weapons). HoM Rewards are according to your whole account which means you can complete the milestones with different characters.
If you want, you can purchase eotn, and after gw2 launches you can still do the HoM stuff. But the EoTN has to be added to your account prior gw2 launch. And also you have to get to the Eye of the North(Hall of Monuments) before(August 28th(?)). Getting there shouldn't be a problem, should take less than 10 minutes.

For some weird reason, I can't use the HoM website on Opera :o. I type a name, click on the button. Next, nothing happens, I remain on the main page. Though it works normally on other browsers...

Just wanted to chime and say that is not true, Anet have said that you will be able to go back to GW1 after launch and get rewards for GW2.

Oh, ok. Not a big problem. I only wanted the black widow (pretty sure I had enough achievements for it), but not worth the effort for me. I always thought they'd let you get it whenever, but I don't wanna have to rush to the store and do all that, lol.
