Back to the question at hand. It really doesn't matter what the largest roleplay server is if your time difference will put you in with few people online at the same time. The only REAL difference between the two, Landroval and Laurelin, is the time zone YOU can play in. (Euro time - Laurelin USA time - Landroval)
Both servers have lots of roleplayers of all kinds as you can see to the conversation above. New roleplayers start out and get their feet wet and old timers get involved in their personal roleplay meetings with others of like interests in the varied and many ways to do that.
Someone told me the main difference they noticed between both servers aside from the play time populations is one server has more roleplay events and the other server has more individual roleplay which I take to mean spontaneous roleplay.
As for name tags, get rid of those names through hitting the N key and you will not be bothered by Imadorfdude as he runs by. Incidentally my kinship and I are on both servers and there are great roleplayers on both servers.
