Are you changing your name?Follow

Anyone pick a name in FFXI and had to spell it a certain way because someone else had your name already? Anyone picking FFVII's Cloud or Sephiroth? SE has claimed they intend to transfer our char data from our FFXI accounts which includes our Friends list. I'm hoping that we can change our name and still access that feature.

I'm hoping their solution to this is to allow you to bind the friends list to the Square Enix ID. Then you bind your character(s) to the ID (similar to the way the POL friends list works now).

I want to play a female Lalafell named Shontata, depends on how cute the final versions look and their hairstyles. If not, maybe an Elezen female named Jasmine, or Saphire. New game, new slate, as others have stated. I played a Hume male last game, give it a change of pace. I'm still praying for a pet class though. I want to keep my old PUP.

Yeah, definitely. I only used the names I did because the one I wanted was taken. Now that we can have last names, I'm more hopeful about getting the one I want.

I was fond of having my name be 'Inside' in FFXI since it was in the in-game translation tool. {Inside}! The japanese called me Nakamura (中村ーさん) :P

IIRC, you can just request a name change and if the name is available, we just note down your old identity in your admin notes.

Oh, cool. I wish I had known that the first two times I started a new account -_-

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

When starting FFXI, I was unaware that everyone would shorten the job names so there was much confusion with Ninjaro and the NIN in our group.

As long as there is no Ninja in FFXIV, I'll stick to it.

I'll only be changing my name if "XxxDarkdeathdealerxxX" is availible. If it's taken I think I might be going with Pookie.

Honestly I been racking my brain trying to think of options for when the time comes. Not sure yet if I'm going with a goofy name, RP style name, FF series NPC name, or something completely different.

But most likely I'll be changing my name from what I have now. I created a dumb quick name in Oblivion, then when I started FFXI I couldn't think of anything so I went with my name from Oblivion. Years later I regret it, it's a lame name IMO.

I honestly don't know. There just isn't enough information for me to make a decision on.

With that said, I may pick a different race this time and have a slight variation on my name. Then again I might just pick the same race and name.

Every game I've played since I was about 12, my name has been Jaye. It will always be Jaye.

What I don't know is, what race I'll be. I picked Mithra because I originally wanted to be a thief wayyyyyy back in the day, and I thought having the dex would be best. I hated the female pronouns the game assigned to me, but I grew to love my little batch of pixels.

I was excited at the prospect of finally being a guy in the game, but after canceling my FFXI account this month, I'm really going to miss my character. It'd be awesome if I could bring Jaye back to the world of Eorzea how he left Vana'Diel, tail and all. I'm conflicted.

I'm going to be spamming the login when the game goes live and I'm going to take 'Sephiroth'. Then I'm going to sit in the starting town and laugh at all the nubs who log in with 'Seferofxxx'.

I'll let them touch me for gil.

Or I'll take Sephirot and wait for people to make fun of me for spelling it wrong then refer them to the dictionary.

And then let them touch me for gil.
