    Forever, we could not give spaces to names of pets, unless, there are multiple names in the name. ie: "a dragon" has 2 name slots, whereas "a greater dragon" has 3 slots.

    If you delete the pet name completely, you can only have 1 name on the pet, with no spaces.

    I'd like to be able to name my pets with multiple slots in the name, without needing to have the original name spaced out.

    Thoughts?

    Can always log into the EC. It allows you to put spaces back in names.

    ya but im pretty sure the EC dosnt let you make the name as long as CC does.
    i ran into this earlier this week.
    so i loaded EC to put the spaces in i needed than logged into CC to actually put in the name.
    was a pain but it worked.

    I believe you are limited in the number of spaces... but yes you can put all the spaces in a name you want in the EC.

    However I caution against that as when commanding pets it's much more difficult to command a pet with a name that has spaces in it.

    If you say call your pet "Andrea"... and say "Andrea Kill" .... works fine...

    But if you name it "Andrea of the Abyss" and you say "Andrea of the Abyss Kill" ..... doesn't always work. Of course all pets like "All Kill"..... but yeah. If you want to control more than one pet I don't suggest giving it more than one name.

    Should I go into the irony of a company based in the Washington, DC metro area banning the name "Constitution" for a pet (and probably a ship) name (because of the extremely minor "profanity" of 3 letters in sequence in the middle of it)?
