Name flagged after xfer/faction change

90 Blood Elf Death Knight
I recently faction changed and server transfered, after which I got the name Cliptis, after logging in today I was flagged for a name change, Id like to know why I was flagged for a name change AFTER your naming policy/convention showed it as available and let me use it AFTER I was on my destination server, this is not the typical account transfer leading to a name being reserved by the original account issue, or atleast it doesnt seem the same to me.

Jumpshot is a very offensive name.

Na, give blizz a call.
Wait 20 minutes on hold.
Let them know what's up.
They can unblock you without you needing to name change.

Funny thing I just did this, went from ally to horde and different server and looks like MAYA is an offensive name, now I wonder why many people name their daughters Maya, thing I have plan to do if I ever have a baby girl, also 225 characters with that name and mine is bad. Great... not! >.<

This is a known bug if you look at the customer service forums...I believe all you need to do is post there or file an in game ticket.
