I doubt there will be. There could possibly be a head start for people who pre-purchase the game but that's just a guess.

As of right now, I wouldn't tell anyone what names you have picked for your characters. You never know what idiot out there will steal them just to be a jerk.

Yeah thats usually what I do and the people who make "What will your characters name be" Threads are usually the people that steal them...

As of right now, according to the Beta FAQ, there won't be any name reservations. That doesn't mean it won't change in the future though. I'm not against it, it's obviously a good system. But I'm not too worried about it either.

Since you will have to use a first/last name, I don't see people taking your name very likely unless you're using something really unoriginal or part of the lore.

You get to use last names (which is pure awesome, why the hell isn't that the case as standard? it's beyond me), reserving is less of an issue (unless your using a name from some existing lore, which is normally frowned upon anyway). Most we will get will be head start for preorder's/CE.

I couldn't agree more. You never know.

It's happened to me before. That's why I'm not giving away my character's name.

i'm wandering how many unoriginal names there will be on launch, i am betting now there will be people trying the following

1.Drizzt Do'Urden a fictional character in the Forgotten Realms campaign
2.Elminster Aumar was one of the most famous and powerful wizards in all of Faerûn
3. Illidan Stormrage the end boss of the Burning Crusage
4. Malfurion Stormrage one of the main characters and co-leader of the night elves
5. Tyrande Whisperwind is the high priestess of Elune and co-leader of the night elves
6. Arthas Menethil - The Lich King
7. John Shepard - from mass effect
8. Volothamp Geddarm - An Explorer from the Forgotten Realms
9. Legolas Greenleaf - Lord of the Rings
10. squall leonhart - final fantasy

i bet any money one of these names gets used on launch day

I'd pay $50 to keep Drizzt away from anyone who would make a clone of him.

I would pay $50 to make sure someone doesn't take that name and then decides to start running around with a warhammer and heavy armor. As long as they stay in the lore of the character, I would be fine with it.

I'd pay $60 now just to make sure you don't buy it out before me.

This is my hope as well, though SOME games use a first/last name system where one of the names is purely cosmetic and the other name is your true character unique name. I hope this isn't how TESO will be.

I use a somewhat common name so I hope I'll be able to get it. I may have to start thinking up a last name for my character though D:
