    Many games, especially MMOs prohibit exceptionally short names. Often they'll require at least 5-7 characters.

    Some names are reserved because an NPC is using them. It's possible that there's a 'Sven' vendor or citizen wandering around, and the name is blocked for that reason.

    Only logical reason is that it's being used by some mod, because it's not offensive what so ever. if so i might consider a name change irl lol

    I saw on another post where some names that were already taken were coming back as banned - might just be a glitch in this instance...hope it helps.
    To be sure of hitting the target - shoot first, and call whatever you hit "the target".

    Earlier this week one of the Trion people said that the "inappropriate name" display was actually being wrongly displayed when in fact the name was already taken. So if somebody else chose the name Sven (likely) then you'd get the "inappropriate name" message even though you should get "This name is already taken"

    I can't use the name "Dagny." This greatly frustrates me, as my main female toon is always named that. The name is "inappropriate."

    I am not sure if they are too worried about being inappropriate.

    I am gonna create a warlock toon and call it CharlieSheen. Now, if only we can have tigers as pets....



    On a more serious note, I have a toon named Pillowpants, one named Kiki (so Sven should be okay on the character length) and one named Durka.

    I actually am confused by some names that they flag as inappropriate as well. Primarily when it comes to including the word "moist" - it's an adjective people, get over it already.

    I like toons that have a theme to their names, and as such on most MMO's I play you can find me as Moistmuffin, Moistcake or Moistbread. Why? Because in game I always tell people that with me I won't cut or scrape the roof of your mouth, instead I'll always be there to Tank, Heal or DPS - whatever is needed, I'll do.

    However, this game and turbine games as well, flag Moistmuffin as inappropriate, in fact they flag anything with MOIST, so I've had to use MoystMufin instead...which is stupid looking.

    Now I could understand if I was trying to name myself Moistpanties or Moistc**t, sure, flag that. But leave my cupcakes alone!
    If you like Rift, or Rifts from Palladium, you'll probably like Ave Molech by me.

    I have a character with 2 characters in the name, that is not the issue here.

    In this day and age, I don't even get the whole "inappropriate" thing.

    I mean....seriously. Do you live under a rock?
