    Legolas is a one-word name. GW1 required two word names.

    I suppose it's entirely possible that the name I want to use hasn't been logged into between now and January 1st, so maybe I'll get lucky.

    In addition to all names in GW1 being 2 or more words, in both GW1 and GW2, copywritten names and other famous names are restricted.

    All 6 of my normal names don't appear to have been taken. So if I jump in early I'm a fair chance of getting 5 at least (will need to buy additional slots for others).

    Mine is taken because I used it for my beta character. Do beta character's get wiped when the game launches tonight?

    My name is also up for grabs at the moment.
    I am going to rush in and reserve the name ASAP because it's taken me fricken actual hours of thinking to come up with one thats original, fits the naming styles and that I actually like it.
    If somehow somebody bloody beats me to it, I'd punch my screen.....

    I just wish there was a way to be 100% positive somebody would take my name or not. I don't really want to have to delete my main character to find out, and then find out it was taken, and have to start leveling the character all over again. :<

    You know, the best way to make sure your names aren't taken is to be creative enough so that the names you game with are unique and original.

    Every time I see someone saying something like "omg i gotta login fast n get my name!" I assume their name will be along the lines of "XKloud StrifeX" or something else equally ridiculous.

    Definitely not the common case, as you might think.

    I'll give you a hint on my Guardians name since my name is so obscure! It is the name used as an alias of an anthropomorphic artists Fursona.

    It is a combination of an Irish based word with roots going back to an issue of cracked magazine. It starts with a P and ends with an E and it is 9 letters longs.

    It has a Z in the middle. One word too! Try and figure it out..good luck.

    Me too!
    Buncha poser wannabes.

    Will we be able to log in, just tag names on 5 characters real quick, thenn delete them later to recustomize?
    Or does gw2 have some kind of lock on names after they are used?

    I know a couple mmo's would have the name on lock for like 24 hours if you deleted the character.

    edit2: Are names the entire game wide? or locked to servers?

    Lol. Well then I hope something is wrong with that site. I'm really the only one in the world that even uses that name.

    Has anyone found a name that IS taken with this? I've plugged in a few common and popular names and everything seems to be untaken
