My FFXI Character was an Elvaan named DamienSlvrblade. He had the blonde chilli bowl haircut. I remember picking it primarily because it had the youngest looking face out of the bunch. I doubt I would make my FFXIV character look the same, as there is probably going to be quite a bit of that going around already, but we'll see how the options look. I doubt I'll use the same name since I'm sure no one would remember me from my hayday 5 years ago. Much to my surprise more than one time I had players think my name was "Damien's lover, Blade" >.>. Besides, from what I've gathered whispering people seems like it might be a pain in the *** in FFXIV (at least it was in 1.0) so I have a feeling that having a super long name might hinder your progress somewhat.
