I see that you already have 'Georgia' on the list but 'Georgie' also seems to be reserved. I had to name my jungle grub 'Georgiee' instead :/

Why can't I name my Loque "Aspen"? It would have been perfect. I had to settle on "Pando", the name of the largest oldest known colony of aspen trees.

I find it funny how you can't name something Megatron but you can use Unicron :lol: So I named my robot that instead.

Sergeant is reserved, as is Sherlock. (SherIock, however, spelled with a capital i instead of an L, is accepted.) Oddly enough, Mycroft isn't.

ARG! Couldn't use Tyranitar or Haxorus (pokemon names) for my green warp stalker because they are reserved. Kecleon was fine, though. o.O

The main problem is the apostrophe, we can't put them in pet names, but I'm fairly certain you can use Loquenahak (all one word).

Veph is right. You can still use Loquenahak though.

Eye of Acherus is reserved. This pissed me off because it wasnt reserved when i first named my battle pet that, and when I released that pet because I had found a rare version of it, the game wouldnt let me give it the same name. :evil:

I wanted to name my new tamed white/blue cat Snowwhite. It was reserved. I didn't try other Disney names. Snowhite is working.

Lestat is reserved. :( Guess I'll have to use a funky character, even though I don't like doing that.

Just as an FYI, I've still been running into the bug that will claim your pet name is illegal if you -just- tamed the pet. It doesn't happen all the time but probably about 30-40% of the time it will say whatever you put in is blocked or has illegal characters in it, even if it doesn't.

Try dismissing the pet and resummoning it before giving up on the name you want to pick!

(Also, I forgot to check, but the name Jewel is blocked, undoubtedly because it contains the letterset 'jew'. Which frustrates me because I want to name every basilisk ever Jewel.)

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

Mirajane and Rogue are reserved.

Mirajáne and Rógue work. But Mírajane didn't so I assume it's the Jane bit that's reserved.

I tried to name a minipet "White Fang", and it told me it was restricted because of mature language (White). I can understand why they wouldn't want to allow something like "white power", but surely they can make a better filter.

"Pippin" is reserved. I know, it's a LOTR name, but I was hoping to name a fox after my new puppy. :c

Tigger is also reserved. Imagine what would happen if there was a restrict on pet names in real life. o-o

This must have been added after Cata; that's my Terrorpene's name.
