How long until...

80 Blood Elf Paladin
How long must my wow sub be inactive before my names are up for grabs, i do not wish to lose them as i wish to re-sub soon on my other account. I especially do not wish to lose the name of my warlock, Veneficus, as it is Latin for warlock and it is awesome. :)

Blizzard does not release the exact criteria for freeing up a name, beyond making is clear that if your account has an active subscription, your names will not be changed.

The only information we have is the support article -

There is speculation, however nothing is public as to the exact criteria that is used to make the determination.

loosing a name would suck because you would usely have to type heaps of names before you find an unused one

I have seen active accounts lose names before, but only if they were level 1's that were created but never logged in.
