Increased Character Options for Names

Nobel 2 years ago updated by SemillonIvaNova 11 months ago 5 1 duplicate

Currently, sites won't allow for any names with a space, hyphen, or in them. I believe it would be a good and popular idea to include some basic character (punctuation) options. These do occur in real life, so why not bring it to the sites? (Take the names Keegan-White, O'Halleran, Gracie Jo, and so on)

Of course, the system with it can't be perfect, but incorporating a one-special-character-per-box method might be in order, possibly having to use a number of "regular" characters in addition.

I think this is great, add more freedom, and creativity. 


Definitely agree! Adds more freedom and uniqueness, plus there a lot of people who's characters get married and want to hyphenate their name. Take Jane Marie Black for example: Jane marries John Doe and wants to  hyphenate her name, but instead of being able to come Jane Marie Black-Doe she becomes Jane Black Doe. I think this is great.

Is there any news on this? I would love this! There's lots of characters on the sites whose names seem to have broken, either missing a hyphen or missing spaces, to begin with, not to mention those who wish to change their name to accommodate on site partners or other family changes.

No official news other than under review for the last eight months.
