With MoP coming, and so many people likely to create new characters now would be a great time to allow for a couple of extra characters in character names.
Having recently created a few alts, I can tell you that it's incredibly difficult to name your character on high pop servers - even if you resort to umlauts and ascii characters.
If the 'technology' exists to allow spaces in character names, or at least hyphens and/or apostrophe it would literally free up thousands of possibilities for names that have long been abandoned or parked never to be used.
I also think it's nicer to see names like Vul'Jin / Vul-Jin / Vul Jin in game as apposed to Vüljîn / Vúljín / Vüljïn / etc.
This is further to my request to delete all the parked/abandoned lvl 1 character names here: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/4254518083
I don't mind them so much when they replace an i with an ì because someone already had the name they wanted, but when half their name is special characters simply to be annoying....
Meh, it's allowed so I guess I don't care.
I'm sorry, but it's not Blizzard's fault that people abused the system...when idiots stop naming themselves "Pvpyerass", "Terdball", and "Jesus" all with special characters, then it'll stop...
You have no one to blame about getting rid of the ASCII symbols but yourselves, you should all be ashamed!

ASCII characters work fine.. Just the other day I created a character named Lóre... ?
