I am thinking it has to do with it being one of the words in an administrative name known as Game Master.

You can name it "Lancaster Dodd," assuming it's not too long.

THEN your pet's name becomes an oblique reference!

Why does it filter titles? When I made a worgen hunter, the dog pet looked so much like a "Duke" to me, but I couldn't name it that. I couldn't think of anything else that fit as well as "Duke" so I scrapped the hunter.

So I got my self a infinite whelping and I wanted to name it The Master.
When I put in the name it tells me "That name contains mature language. Enter a new name"


Interestingly, I can't call mine "The Doctor" or "Doctor", because "That name is reserved. Enter a new name."

Same problem, different error.

Can't name them titles? That explains why I couldn't name my enchanted broom "Sir sweepington" then again it gave me the error "Name already taken" not "cannot name" or whatever... Still upset about that =(

I tried to name a 2s team "Alvin's Hot Juice Box" (Adventure time reference) and it got rejected by the mature language filter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcoLZ8p-2Ls

"We don't need a bunch of Paladins named Sirshinypants or Worgen Warlocks named Lorddarkflame running around!


We largely prohibit titles because we offer them as rewards for accomplishments in-game, not because they're offensive.

So why is Audry, Audry Two, Lil Audry, etc... unacceptable for a pet name?

My Venus needed to be a reference pet!

I thought Pets were excluded from the title naming restrictions.


Titles (Does not apply to Guild, Arena Team or Pet Names)
Fantasy titles should be earned through the mechanics of the game, and should not be recreated through character naming. This category includes names which:

Consist of any title prefix attached to a character's name be it fantasy-based or not (e.g. Kingmike, Presidentsanchez)


Or are companions considered different from pets?

I am curious about the reserved response. Who is reserving all these names? And if someone can actually reserve a pet name, that is pretty unfair. Unless, reserved has a different meaning.

Please explain what all the messages really mean when we try to name our pets.

Thanks.

So why can't we use "the" in any of our pets' names? I wanted to name a raccoon "Socks the Second", but that isn't allowed either!

I had to settle for "Two Socks".
