Archives » Doesn't look like a real name??????
Guest/Visitor

hi there!!

i'm greatly discouraged to start playing this game....
after 1 hour trying to get a handle suitable of your criteria, including dozens of names sugested by your name generator, i decided to put in my REAL LIFE NAME ..... and although it was accepted by the register form process, i was completelly p***** off when the admin returns one e-mail telling me that the handle was rejected because it didn't look like a real name ..... WTF????

I would advise trying a different surname, other than God.

hey m8 i'm talking about my real name.... not an invented name.

as for trying another surname, i have tryed for 1 hour diferent names including loads of names from the name generator you advise to use!!!!!!

i had enough of this .... not going to start anyway... as i am really anoyed and offended with this all situation.... i know this sounds like something else in english but in portuguese it's a normal name ...i am portuguese and i don't make fun of other countries names althou they some times sound like funny.

best regards.... and good luck with your project.

"God" simply sounds like an ego problem, not a last name. Surely you'd see a problem if someone was running around calling himself Jesus (the hispanic version) Christ.

You're also not allowed to use your true name as your Combine handle.

so.... if i canot use my real life name, i can't use my usual gaming names.... and after about 30 mins of trying names created by your name generator..... PLEASE sugest a name for me to try!!!!!


Well... What race are you going to choose? I know, you don't actually pick one until after you're accepted, but deciding BEFORE you need to worry about that may help. Say you're going Falleen. You could be... Xenor Du`tan.

It really depends on what you plan to do. At least in my book.

People, seriously is it so difficult to get a name that is accepted?

The random name generator suggests names that are unacceptable?

God (probably pronounced 'Gode') is indeed a fairly common surname.
411.com surname God

You're also not allowed to use your true name as your Combine handle.  


Can you point out that rule, Wilhelm? Because it certainly isn't in the Character Creation rules.

Those, also, are real life names. Those people have separate Handles they use for the game.

The "rule" about real life names is that people can change their Handle for being too close to their real name, but it isn't a reason on its own to decline a Handle.

As for God being a real surname, that may well be the case, but it is far more likely to be known to the majority of these players only as referring to a deity, and I don't think it makes a good Handle. I don't mean that as any insult to your real life name, Jose, but the Combine deals with many different cultures, and uses English as the language for them all to interact. Therefore it is the English meaning of a word or name that must be considered first (and often only).
