    12 letter limit on names

    Does anyone else wonder why this is still a thing? I mean im not asking for GW2 style last names or adding numbers into your name but instead just a longer variation...I feel as if 12 letters screws me over sometimes when I make new toons since the names that I think of are sadly 14 or 13 letter long

    Idk I was just thinking about this the other day since its been this way since launch and longer names would be nice.

    I'd prefer they go the FFXIV route and let your character have both a first name and a surname. RP'ers would love that (they can do it right now but only via an addon, and their surname only shows to other people that have the addon). It would also help with trying to find a name that's not taken.

    I'd be totally okay with surnames. Most modern MMOs do it, or allow at least one space in your name (prime examples being GW2, FFXIV, The Secret World, and SWTOR). As for 12, well, may as well bump it up to 15 to make it a nice, rounded number.

    I'd love that, I don't RP but it'd be nice to be able to have a surname for all my characters - it'd make it easier to tell who's who for those doing the same, instead of having a similar naming scheme in one name, since that's pretty limited.

    Rather late, and pointless, at this point.

    I still don't get why we can't add an apostrophe in our name, when sooo many npcs are like that.

    I want no character limits *and* first and last names. I could finally realize my dream character, storied adventurer Saunterblugget von Hampterfuppinshire.

    I agree, but it might be a coding issue or the servers couldn't handle it.

    Totally agree.

    If anything raise it to 15-20 max, would help alleviate the problems of character creation in a game with tens if not hundreds of millions of characters.

    Because it's hard-coded into the base of the game and to change it would probably break more things than you can imagine. I suspect this may even be more a problem than the backpack.

    Discussing moderation is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Send a PM if that's not clear. Don't put it in a thread.
    Please report problem posts instead of responding to them.

    Post about the topic, not about one another.

    Treat me like anyone else unless you're breaking rules or we need to do site business. I play. I have likes and dislikes. We're not that different.

    12 letters is fine, though would welcome a firstname/surname system. As well as a blocking of all the dumb words from various countries.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!
    Just because there isn't a cookie you like doesn't mean there is no cookies (Content discussion)
    Three expansions in dust; Cata: 1-2 hrs, MoP: 40-60 min, WoD: 60 min (own experience).

    yeah I would like the firstname/surname as well

    first/sur name would be nice. as well as having " space" availability like having 2 (first) names. How easy will it become to create a new char and get the name you want.
    I'm not online, it's just your imagination

    12 chars is more than enough.. Please list ALL name you can think of, that are 13 or more letters..

    REAL NAMES, ofc.. Not TrolololArthasDK style names..
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > MoP > WoD = WotLK

    Surnames are useless and the 12 letter limit is fine.

    No then someone will name their character "Llanfairpwllgwyngyll". Have fun saying that in speech chat.

    I really want surnames as well. It would make things just so much easier.

    Surnames, maybe.

    Longer character limit or no character limit at all? Fuck no, some names are too long as it is.

    Longer than 12 character?! Hell no!!! I would also force people to change their names that they created by randomly bashing their head on their keyboard couple of times. Something like nujhyuyujyhu
