As the title, really. I reactivated an older account and would like to change the name of that toon. I can't seem to find anything regarding how to do this, only how to transfer chars.

Any pointers?

Learn to love the skin you are in.

When I started this character, I thought: "What a dumb name. Oh well, I'll get used to the game and start a REAL character later." That was over 2 years ago. The best laid plans of mice and men...

You have a pointWink

I'd still like to know if it's a possibility. I assume there's some kind of fee, but I'm still in the dark.

...until I found this
''Only character names that are deemed as inappropriate are eligible for a possible name change. Names will not be changed for any other reason''

A while back one of my character's names had a capital letter in it that I didn't mean to put there. I think it was an "I". I petitioned and they changed it for me.

Depends on who you talk to and how much of a change you are talking about. In my case, I found another OC person who knew that capital letter was driving me insane Laughing

Changing capitalisation on newer chars is regularly done, actually changing names only happens if your name is found to break the rules. Otherwise it won't happen.

As far as I know, the big reason they will willingly do capitalization changes is the Eve client search doesn't differentiate capitalization, meaning wither or not you capitalize the name or not the character can still be found. Changing spelling of course prevents this, and can be problematic.

Also, if you think that convincing a GM your name is an insult will get you a good new name, you will be disappointed.

Your name will be changed to <race>Citizen<random number>. Not really a name you might want for yourself.
