My druid had a name that violated the TOS and a GM forced me to log off in the middle of an Illidan raid, and I couldn't log back in until I had picked a new name. My entire guild was waiting on me so I just made a new NE character, hit the random name thing until I got one that seemed ok, then copied and pasted it as my druid's new character name. A few hours later, I was wishing I had just retired for the evening and taken the time to think of a better name. I never paid to have it changed because although the new name is kind of bland, it's a perfectly good name and by the time I was eligible to change it again I was already known by it.

So what was the name that violated the ToS? I'm curious.

Consider yourself lucky that you were asked to change it. Under the policies as written, being asked to change your name is only the penalty for trademark infringement when the holder complains directly; for every other case of inappropriate name, the GM is supposed to assign you a random name (likely necessitating a paid name change at a later date).
