So GW1's untaken name database was just released. I got my dream name "Riven The Exile". Now I just have to wait for gem-costing name changes to put it on my Warrior and it will be perfect!

Which lead me to the question, what epic names did you all get now that they are all released? Post them here and flaunt your name based notoriety!

Is it really considered a steal if I abandoned it?

I got the name i wanted! I got frustrated when i was hit with the character creation limit exceeded and few times, then a "Name is already taken" popped up, i was so angry. But it kept trying and it seems like it was bugged saying back and forth that it was still reserved. Then i was finally able to get the name I've been keeping my eye on since release!

What kind of silly question is that? Of course it is!

Hahah, I'd like to see people take the crappy names I used for the all of 2 months that I played GW1! :D That's not stealing. I was giving them away!

I was checking at 2:00, then 2:01 restarted client, still reserved, restarted again and my name was taken. Ended up with Judas Iscariot, not really a name I wanted, but I'll take it. I saw people with names of Justin Beiber and George W Bush after making my character.

Being that Judas Iscariot has a huge religious significance dont be surprised if you get reported and forced to change the name

Fearless Fox.

I like the 'Fox' designation, been using it for years.

Also 'Luna Cry' for my female Mesmer (reference to an event in Final Fantasy VIII).

Checked a few minutes ago and my main from GW's name was still up. I grabbed it, just cause it would be weird to see my 'ancestor' running around.

Congrats to anyone who got a name they wanted, i guess.

Non sense in what way?
Judas Iscariot is a huge figure in the christianity...you know the man who betrayed jesus and all that?
So yeah I could see that name getting reported and changed, not that it matters to me either way as I personally have no problems with it but just saying there are those who will.

I completely disagree, do you have any past examples of religious references being changed in such a manner? Your suggestion is ludicrous. I will bet good money that ArenaNet could not care less about a name like Judas Iscariot. By the way I enjoy your passive aggressive response and the implication that I am unaware of the source text...

Just dont really care...its against the naming policy so yeah, was just a comment that the name might be reported and not a post to start some stupid argument...If they get a report they will make him change it, if they dont they wont. So yeah what ever. Passive agressive enough for you?

I find it hard to believe there was actually some kind of rush to grab two-word names...

Why?  Multi-word names were the standard in GW and there were thousands of good ones out there.

https://www.guildwar...-naming-policy/

One of the lines:

We do not permit names that: Reference religious or historical figures.

So you can disagree all you want with it, but that's the policy they have in place. How much money were you betting again? I never say no to easy money. Unless you're claiming you know ArenaNet's naming policy better than they do, in which case, I'm all ears!

I first used this theme name for Fallen Earth.

Lizzie Bee, a theme name based on Lizzie Borden.  The plan is to dual wield only axes despite any warrior FotM.

Isn't Jesus on the list of prohibited names?
