original namesby Slayer of Hope
It is a good point that people can't be punished just because they have chosen a name used somewhere in some book that maybe only a few people have ever read. I used to have a character who i thought had a pretty cool name, but upon re-reading the Wheel of Time this past summer, I found that the character's first name was mentioned once in one of the books. I do think action should be taken, however, against those who blatantly steal names. I have seen people running around who have the exact same name as a main character in some books, and the description is stolen from the book as well. I have also seen people who have used the name of, say, professional athletes. Try to show at least some creativity here...
