I am suddenly feeling much older than my senior citizen age. I don't understand why they are banning the la combination. What has someone managed to make those two letters into that is bad? In many European languages, la is a form of the word "the."

I was thinking about adopting a new webbie or two but seeing how Ganz is censoring names, I have no desire to spend my money on their products. If a name was really out in left field, I might understand, but I have read about banned names like Brownie and such. That is absolutely ridiculous.

Preston contains "TO" and "to" is banned. If you want to use the name for another pet, try Presten or Prestin.

Brownie is banned bc it contains "brown"

I'm sorry you're having trouble. You should wait as long as you can to adopt your pet. You could try everyday until you think of something you like better. Ganz wouldn't let me use Sally. Which seems like a pretty harmless name, I waited a few days then I thought of another name. It wasn't my first choice but if I ever do get to use the name Sally I think I'll adopt another rottweiler.

Some of these just seem so silly to me. As for Blanca, would you be able to do B l a n c a instead (leaving a space between each letter)? I may make the name a bit longer, but it would still be the same name, and would not be difficult to read and understand. You never know.

Good luck!

The Stella problem is the "LA" and the problem with Almond is actually "MON." If you have more questions check out Redbear's thread. I posted a link above, and it is in Redbear's signature as well.

My son wasn't allowed to name his sheep Cotton...I swear, I will NEVER understand why some of these words are "not allowed!"

What's so bad about cotton? Are we supposed to all be going to polyblends??

I wanted to name my Black Cat Morticia and it would not let me, and then I changed the spelling to Mortisha and it still wouldnt let me. I decided to try Ebony and that went well. I really wanted to have the Adams Family. I was going to have Gomez for a Bat and Morticia for the cat and Pugsly for the Pug. But Ganz messed that up for me. I am sorry that you are having naming problems too.
