In every MMO game I have played on each server there was only one person that could use a first name.  So if they did let someone use John there would only be on each server. :logical:

I agree with Riens, it's about time they introduce surnames and other things so we don't have just one John anymore, It's quite ludacrous for me to expect to be the only Christopher in the galaxy seeing as thousands of people have that name on this one planet alone.

Being an Andorian, it would be customary to have a name with 'Shr' at the beginning of my character's name. Probably 'Shrak', or 'Shrek'.
No relation to the green ogre.

City of Heroes does that, so there can be lots of "Captain Whatever" and "Doctor Soandso"

Instead of the typical /tell name message you just have to put a comma after the name. That will enable a lot of people to have the same first name, which is more realistic.

If I am using the name Taulek.

(pronouced Tau-lek)

I would choose to be a Vulcan (Presumely an engineer) or I would choose an Andorian security officer

[QUOTE]

An easy fix to the name problem is by making more than just the first name a factor in creating an original name.  Last names should have bearing on originality.  This is especially true in a Star Trek game.  You can reasonably expect a human to be called John or Mike or any other normal name.  It is not like most MMOs where there is a fantasy element and your name is expected to be different and original.  So then there should be a system in place that would say allow for more that one mike or john.
