@25: Euryale was one of the Gorgons; her sisters were Medusa and Stheno. In the original Greek, the pronunciation would be (eh-oo)-roo-ah-lay, with the accent on the "ah" if I'm not mistaken (pronounce "eh-oo" almost as a diphthong). In English, either 28 or 31's pronunciation is acceptable.It would be nice to see Blizzard implement a feature, either in the in-game character sheet or in the Armory (or both!), where, for the 90-day holding period at least, a renamed character's original name was listed: "Bar, formerly Foo". I would suggest that the former name not be searchable (too many players are going to change their characters' names because of harassment from other players); even without that, though, it would provide a quick way to verify former identities.Out of curiosity, do we know what will happen when a changed name /doesn't/ meet the naming policy? Will the $10 be refunded, or will the player be asked to try again with a different name? Also, what happens in the case of name-change collisions - where two players try to change their name to the same thing at the same time?The more I think about it, the more questions I have - which is not to say that I think it's a bad idea! I'm just a curious critter.-Chris A. http://www.etherjammer.com/blog/
