DDO Naming Policy


The following are examples of character names and guild names that are NOT appropriate for Dungeons & Dragons Online. Some names that do not fall within one of the examples below may still be inappropriate. Dungeons & Dragons Online Support has final say over what constitutes a violation of the character naming policy.

  • Proper names and places or close facsimiles thereof, from the story characters or non-player characters (NPCs) introduced in the fiction of Dungeons & Dragons Online.
  • Fantasy or non-fantasy names from popular culture or media.
  • Sexually explicit, defamatory, obscene, racially or ethnically offensive names or slang.
  • Names of historical or religious significance.
  • Trademarked names of products, goods, materials or services.
  • Common names, slang or references to drug related substances, culture or paraphernalia.
  • Names containing ranks, titles or denotation of power.
  • Names causing harm, mockery or imitation of Dungeons & Dragons Online players, NPCs in addition to Standing Stone Games, LLC. employees, past or present.
  • Common names, slang words, phrases or references not consistent with the Dungeons & Dragons universe.
  • Misspelled variations or homonyms of any of the above rules.

Policy Enforcement

If we find, in our sole discretion, that your character or guild is in violation of the character naming policy, Dungeons & Dragons Online Game Masters may take any or all of the following steps:

  • Contact you In-Game to discuss your character/guild name.
  • Automatically change your character/guild name.
  • Automatically suspend or terminate your/the guild leader’s account without refund.


In Game Support Naming Violation Policy 

If a name is found to be in violation, we will be changing names that are found to be violations to a suitable fantasy name of the Game Master’s choice. The player that is found in violation of the policy will not have a choice of a new name.

We encourage that each player thoroughly review our Naming Policy prior to creating a character or naming a Guild. Violations of the policy will result in a more suitable name being applied to the character and, if appropriate, action being taken against the player’s account.

You may certainly still appeal the name change by visiting help.standingstonegames.com. You may also choose to purchase a new name if you are unhappy with the name that was provided to you.


*Note* Additional naming violations may result in further actions against your account.
