    Did you know: You cant name your bridle "Shadowfax"

    Kept telling me that the name is not appropriate for Middle Earth... I was kinda bummed out :P

    Havent tried, but does it allow you to use lore related names for other LI?

    Perhaps this is best suited under legendaries?

    I'm not entirely sure why you would want to? There is only one Shadowfax

    I'm guessing because he likes the name >_> I find it interesting that the bridle is what has this limitation and not the horse itself.

    They didn't mean "Horn". They meant anything containing the four-letter combination -horn-, Yamy.
    "Icehorn" isn't a lore-name. Nor is "Ghornom". Yet, according to JaxV, those couldn't be used, 'cause they contain -horn-.

    Have to check this, next time I log in. It just sounds... weird.

    For the OP:
    Lore-names are forbidden, locked off. You can get around that lock, but that's not... okay. There's more about the naming policy here.

    I tried a few things like (but not exactly as I cant remember what I did try) 'bluehorn' or 'hornam', then tested it by trying '#####' - I suspect this is why, because '#####' is a british term for feeling, ya know, 'in the mood' . Maybe they should just have locked '#####'??

    ETA: Yep, filter there sorry!

    Yup, terms related to...adult activities...are locked off, as well as things containing them.

    Don't try to name your elf or elf-minded "Moralph" ("Black Swan") or "Moralagos" ("Black Storm Wind"), either. Won't work. Because they have 'oral' in it. :/
    Same goes for "Anoralph" ("Sun Swan")....and various other combinations...

    Now i'm confused because I tried both the names I mentioned above and they work, I am sure that nothing with 'horn' in worked before

    But anyway, my goat is now called Hornam

    Lots of things are blocked, generally anything that is too close to any "real" name and anything they consider not appropriate for an in-game name (e.g. you can't use digits in LI names).
    Used to play: 85 Champ / Captain / Runekeeper / Guardian, Guild Master of everything but cooking.
    Playing now: Hellcat / King Tiger / GW Panther / IS / KV-5 / M4 Sherman and more

    Which annoys me because I like to keep track of the level of my farm LIs, especially when the level cap changes. Have to use FarmSdAteFor instead of FarmSd84 so I easily know to sell the legacy scroll when I decon it at level 86+.

    I find this strangely appropriate as, of course, Shadowfax never needed a bridle On my Warsteed, I un-equip all Cosmetic Appearances because it's how an Elf would probably ride, and feels more natural
