    I've got a few names that I was totally excited about that have been rejected as of last night. I understand that it happens, I'm not angry and I sent in an email to support, but I figured this might be a fun thing to chat about in the meantime. Good for a laugh at least, I hope! :wink:

    The names that got rejected were:
    Peter Barker, which was a pun on Peter Parker since he's a dog.
    Spiderman
    Danny Fenton and Danny Phantom from the cartoon of the same name.
    (They accepted Sans though haha)

    I can sort of understand Peter Barker and the Dannys, since the mods have a lot of names to accept and they probably just assumed they were real names. The pun might've thrown them off, no time to stop and appreciate every genius pun I suppose.
    Spiderman took a little longer to get rejected, and I was totally surprised... He's so recognizable! They're all so recognizable, really. And they even use Captain America in the name rules page as an example of recognizable, acceptable names, which I find kinda funny honestly.

    How about you guys? What's the silliest name you ever had rejected? Did you appeal and get it accepted?

    Please keep trying to get it approved because I love that name ;-;

    To answer the question I normally use the pick-a-name thingy so I've never really had trouble with it being approved

    @Petallities That's a great pun! Maybe they thought you were trying to start a riot or something. :tearsofjoy:

    I once tried to make a vomit-green pig with the name Splattergroit, after the weird wizard-sickness that Ron gets in one of the later books. It's supposed to produce nasty green boils that end up busting and splattering everywhere, so I found it fitting for an "ugly" toon :D
    Alas, they rejected it (though I'm honestly not surprised lol) and I couldn't think of another fitting name so I ended up deleting the toon :oops:

    Aw man, you shoulda gone with something like Barfolomew or Mucinex.
    Although if you'd explained that your choice was a reference they might've fixed it!

    Oh man!! I wish I had thought of something like that, those are actually really awesome!!! :D
    And that's true, I should've tried a bit harder to get the name approved, maybe I'll try again in the future, I still have one more slot on my first account, and nowadays there's always the wonderful option of making a whole new account :smirk::smilingimp:

    Got them accepted! Well, some of them. The Peter Barker pun didn't translate well as a fictional name, and Danny Fenton was also too close to a possible real name. I do have Peter Parker, Danny Phantom, and Spiderman all ready to go now though.
    It's a sign to never give up hope on your names. ^^

    I just don't like the pigs very much though. I thought mine would be fun because it's a concept I've drawn before actually. o:
    I'm fine with having the actual name though.
