I had that issue too, however the name I wanted actually turned out to be filtered out.  Anyway, here is what I did...I went to the EQ2Players website and did a search for characters with the name that I wanted.When I found a name that was not taken, (and I thought was acceptable), I tried the transfer service.While this might solve your issue, I still had problems at that point though.I then went to create a new character, and tried using the new name, and discovered that there is a problem with the name of Morgan.  Turns out it was the -organ- part the system didn't like.I sent a petition in explaining that I was trying to get the name of Morgan, which was not taken, and how, to my knowledge, it is an acceptable name, citing real life uses of it, but that the filter was catching the word organ and not letting me use it.I received an in game response stating that they had approved the name, and I should attempt to make the transfer.I immediately did so, and got my transfer and new name.I hope my experience helps!- Katsi
