They have to be lenient because they chose to make names super unique though.

As for Xin the Great the Evil, you can now also go with "names" like Gray Fox. Or the Amazing Xin the Evil. Every downside has its upside?

I prefer a single name too, I find it looks out of place in NPC conversations and as Xin says can look odd with a title.  Though I do have some good ideas for dual named toons should the feeling take me.

"St. Necessarily So" or "Colin Occupantsofinterplanetraycraft" roll off the tongue nicely :)

/may not be 100% serious

Yep, one of my chars in GW1 is "Morrydwen Ravensong". Works just fine, and there's no title in it :)
LOTRO had last names too.

Was there a name reservation exercise in gw2? It's running together in my brain with TSW release which did allow it... :-/

You could reserve two word names in GW1.

You could reserve any existing GW1 names by logging into them before July 31 IIRC.  I didn't particularly bother tbh, I'd rather a single name.

I keep on reading about "server full" problems, when new accounts can't join that server anymore... I hope it's not true, I'd hate ending with only half the guild on Gandara and the rest not able to join.

Well, at worse, we'll transfer to a lower population server, but still, this makes me worry a bit.

Has it confirmed by Arenanet that it is possible to have a full server (not allowing creation for new accounts?)

Can't find anything official, but there are many threads on several forums about it.
Well, if it happens, we will just change server, no big deal. Transfers are free.
