I'm not really sure what to say to this. It seems you just started the game, maybe you found some random idiots that were making fun of you. I wouldn't take it too seriously. If you're just started the game I would suggest you focus more on understanding the world around you then other random snide comments.

Ignore them but if they're doing it way too excessively, then report them.

They might be picking on your character's name because it's not an allowed name. It's a violation of the "no phrases" rule, so you might want to reroll the character (since it's low enough level you can regain it quickly).

Names cannot contain a phrase or partial sentence, per the naming rules. "Cowpunhere" is a phrase...and honestly not that creative of a name in the first place.

Some are pushing the envelope and some just haven't been reported yet.

I can't see what realm you are playing on, RP realms tend to self-enforce the naming policies pretty ruthlessly.

No, it's a phrase. Regardless of how you pronounce it in your head, other English speakers do read that as "Cow pun here". When you write or type something down, it's your audience's reaction that counts, not what you intended to convey with the words you choose to write.

Best to reroll, wait for a forced name change, or get used to the static other players will give you.
