with simon it is the 'mon' part of it.................. i know it makes no sense...................

again, if it were me id use the caps option with the number SIM0N

but lots of people dont like that option................. you can change the spelling

simun........... simyn............... symyn................

redbears thread has other options too.................. thats all i remember

and your daughter probably named the unicorn pet,diamond, before this filter went into effect.

The name filter is so frustrating! I tried to name my manatee "Violet" and it wouldn't let me do that, either. I think someone was seriously confused when they put the filter in.

My other pet peeve is the new room naming system -- in a word it STINKS. Can't they at least add some descriptive terms like colors or seasons instead of limiting you to your pet's names for the room names? I really, really wonder what their logic is, or what exactly happened to cause these horrendous filters to be added.

Growl, growl, grrr! (I need more coffee, sorry for the rant!)

Anyway, I think the name "Diamond" is perfect for an albino horse and it's a shame the OP can't use it. How about "Platinum" or "Glitter" or "Crystal"?

Good luck getting your name - you should be able to have what you want!

Yes, that is very weird! I tried to name my pet "Sea Shell", and it wouldn't let me, probably because of the part in "Shell". I had to go with "Sea She11", and it's looks terrible! Well, I hope you get it working.

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

There has been a lot of inconvinience with pet naming for a while now, and as others have said, its usually because of different letter combinations. I dont know why, But i wish I did. To name your pet Diam0nd would get you to use the name, althogh i can understand how you wouldnt want to put a number in the middle of his name.
I've also found it abit frustrating they wont let yo use periods in a pet's name, like if you were calling it Mr.Something. I wanted to call one of my pets T.J, but they woudlnt allow the period so i had to call it T-J. I dont see where using the period or the slash makes much of a difference.
All i can say is I hope the glitch, or whatever it is, gets correxted so we can use the names there are nothing wrong with!
Good luck!

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! >=(

:husky::husky:
I ran into this problem a couple of times and as silly as it seems to all of us it has something to do with their dictionary. What you will need to do is contact Ganz and their representative will need to manually add the name Diamond. They know about this, but I have the feeling that right now they have bigger fish to fry trying to solve some of the more important glitches for us. So as annoying as it is just call and they will help you.

I couldn't name my Whimsey Dragon Diamond, either. They don't like mon. I think I know why but it shouldn't be said. If I'm wrong my new theory is that....it's plain weird.

That happened to me too!!!! I tried to name my Crocodile Monty (After Steve Irwin's Crocodile) and I was really upset when it said " You have used a word that is not allowed" I was really upset, but I have a pet named Diamond too, she is a lil'kinz black and white cat .

Oh that stinks! I'm so sorry for you.. Maybe it's because 'diamond' sounds like 'die' even though it's not really spelled that way.. Just a thought. Anyways you could try other whtie jewels..If I knew of any I would tell you! The only one I could think of is Pearl and that's kind of girlish!

Good luck! Best Wishes!
