    Default MMORPG Character Name standard(For First and last name)

    Hi, I'm quite new to mmorpg.

    I want to create a character with first and last name.

    e.g: John Doe

    Unfortunately, it doesn't allow space, therefore should i put:

    John_Doe
    or
    JohnDoe

    What is the "standard" for character naming convention?

    Please advise, Thanks

    I wouldn't say there is a standard or general preference. I think it really comes down to what you think is more aesthetically pleasing. In my personal opinion, I think Firstname_Lastname looks a wee bit tacky. I prefer FirstLast, although First.Last doesn't look to bad really. Up to you.

    The more I think about it, probably if the name is longer, then we should use underscore. If name is shorter, we don't have to use it.

    e.g:
    Annabella_Marvelorich
    AnnabellaMarvelorich <--Look like too many characters scrambling together

    John_Suwa
    JohnSuwa <-- Since it's short enough, it still look pretty to the eyes.
