I would think twice about posting any good names or names that have emotional impact for you.

You know, I was thinking about making Girr, a little green dog what flew and shot sammitches out of its noggin....

Dang.  I shouldn't have let that name out... *sighs*

Just want to point out that since this is a binary snapshot it will likely have the same number of servers as it did when taken. Not sure what would have to be done to reduce the number of servers but I suspect that at restart they will be the same as they were.

If it requires some kind of recompile, it likely won't happen since we are not getting the source code. If it requires some kind of special tool, likewise those are lost.

It's going to be hilarious watching all the new characters get created only to log out the second they touch paragon/isle ground. 

What would be even more hilarious is if there was someway to limit character creation to one a day for the first two weeks. I'd cry a little if this happened but totally accept and understand knowing what the name game means to people, including myself.

Joke names I could never keep (would delete after the joke's 15-seconds of fame ran out):

Working as Intended the Ice Melee/Rock Armor tank with no granite
Scrubbles the fire breathing Bubbler
Mr. Gettothepointy Pants the Katana/Elec Stalker
Global Ignore the Earth/Sonic troller (a friend saw this name and couldn't believe it was available - "GIVE IT TO ME" was all I remembered before "k" and my deleting it)
Elvira Condios the dark/dark brute, deleted because the chest slider couldn't go far enough to the right...

The Incredible Hunk
It takes a village to raise a child. And it takes a villain to explain the value of lunch money.

Sorry but my characters names will be kept a secret until I make them sorry :)

Yep.  We are the most awesome community ever but I've noticed names are thin ice topics.  And I'm saving mine too. I'm pretty sure a few are popular enough I won't get them on the server I eventually settle on.

Same here. I'm not going to give out my characters names because people will steal them.

Perhaps a better question would be:

What method do you use to generate your names? Considering most CoH Vets are heavy altaholics...

http://www.thesaurus.com/ and l33t speak were my best bets, unfortunately.

The CoX forums used to have a thread where people would check for names that were open using the built-in name checker and post them for people to openly use.  Other people would post names they were sitting on and trade them for names other people were holding.
