Naming the Player is crucial to the Character Creation process. Once the name is set, it cannot be changed (Unless certain items are purchased). The Player name is displayed to other users, which helps others identify the player. It is also used by some NPCs, and is displayed in the main HUD and Character Menu. While most names are allowed, some are prohibited and will not allow the name to be used (along with a message depending on what name is chosen). If the played is having trouble decide a name, a randomizer is available.
Below is a list of names, and the message that is displayed when the user attempts to apply it.
(Any name that is already taken) - "That name is already being used"
(Name of any follower) - "Try to be more original"
Illummix - "Really?"
AAAAA - "How Creative..."
Bjorin - "No."
Earnet - "Let's not, okay?"
Nihilus - "Hail UMBRA"
Mirage - "How about we don't use that?"
Kalcatt - "Nope."
Krono - "No..."
Potter - "YOU ARE NOT A WIZARD!"
Lamporus - "Never."
Farlenefal - (using this name will cause the screen to go red for a split second, and crash the game. This is on purpose).
(Name of any Faction) - "Wow."
Memes - "Dank."
(Name of any race) - "Nice try."
(Profane language) - "LANGUAGE!!!"
(Name of any other significant NPC) - "That name is not allowed"
