I made a druid and named her knottywench. I'm leveling her feral, but plan to switch her to healing spec once I hit 80. Ya know, tree form. So knotty, because trees have knots. Wench as the toon is female.
I got annoyed with someone using very foul language (I cuss like a sailor so you know it had to bad for me to be offended) and told them I was reporting if they didn't stop. They didn't. I reported.
Two days later when I go to log in, I am asked to rename my toon as it was flagged as an offensive name.
I renamed her knoteewench. This morning when I logged in I found my toon was named Nerdoa. Blizz had another report and they changed the name for me.
The only way I could change it again was to do a paid name change. GM's were no help, email to account admin was the same reasponse.
I'm annyoed as heck. There are far worse names out there than mine but they only do something about it if it gets reported.
I loved my name......
Now I'm back to an old standby. Alicat. I'm waiting for that to get reported now even though I ran it by a gm first.
