Default Unanswered: Can't name my pet 'Diamond'???

For some reason, when adopting my newest webkin, it told me that the name I'd chosen- Diamond- contained 'a word they did not allow'. What??? What could possibly be misconstrued about 'Diamond'?

I halted the adoption because I had my heart set on naming him Diamond (he's an albino horse). This is rather upsetting for me, because I don't want to name him anything else. Should I contact Ganz? Is this a 'glitch' or problem that will correct itself if I wait?

What should I do??


***Updated to say that I did a little research into the matter, starting by checking out tournament results in the arena. I noticed someone with a pet named "Monkey". Thinking maybe it had to do with where combinations of letters were in a word, I tried naming my horse 'Monkey' and it still wouldn't allow it!

On the flip-side, I tried naming a pet using other letter combinations people have said were not allowed. I tried naming a pet 'Leila' and it did had no problem with it! I also tried 'la la'
and 'loo' and 'ashley' and every single time, it allowed it! I don't know what's going on, but this seems pretty arbitrary to me, and it's only making me more annoyed! >=(

yeah GANZ has some wierd restriction on the simple combination of letters , such as "as" or "oo" and so on...I tried naming my bat "Leila" and i couldn't b/c "la" isn't allowed! why, i don't know! sorry about that...
how about naming it:
Ashton, Snowbell, Snowball, Pearl, Jasmine, Daisy, Tulip, Daffodil, Rose, or visit the naming shops for more ideas! Good luck!

You can't use the letter combination "mon" for some obscure reason. However, try spelling it in all capital letters, and substitute the number "0" (zero) instead of the letter "O". It will look the same and it should go through.

They don't like mon for some reason. I could not name my chipmunk Simon.

This is absolutely ridiculous.

So, apparently the combination of 'hel' is alright, as well as 'fu', but not 'mon'?? What POSSIBLE inappropriate word contains that combination of letters? None that I can think of. Are they worried too many people will be naming their pets Monday? ???

Ugh, this is just downright disappointing, if not infuriating, and I will be calling their customer service department tomorrow if for nothing else than to at least complain! >=(

If the people at Ganz absolutely cannot be reasoned with...I'm thinking of naming him Diamante, which means Diamond in spanish (it sounds more boy-ish anyway).

And marnabear, that is GARBAGE that you could not name your chipmunk Simon (how cute!). The Webkinz site needs to be more considerate of it's users, and the people at Ganz need to start putting more effort into their lazy programming.

That's weird, I've gotten some Webkinz recently, and they had some letters in their names that they don't allow for you guys (like "la" and "mon"), but they were allowed for me.

Here is the link to RedBear's thread on this subject, she has done an enormous amount of work on this problem since the new crazy name-filter was introduced in September:

http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...s-t386700.html

I just tested it, and Diamond is refused, but both DIAM0ND and Diamante are OK.

Interesting...maybe we don't have the combinations right. Could you tell us some of the names you were allowed to use with them?

Ah, thanks for the link! I just edited my post to say I'd tested it right before I read this. Maybe pets with names that are now 'unacceptable' were adopted before September? Although, that wouldn't explain why I am able to register under some names that others still cannot.

Thanks for the idea, but I really don't want to have to name a pet in all Caps for any reason...it just wouldn't fit in with the rest of my pet names!
