Default Unanswered: Name restrictions on pets?

I just tried to adopt a wolf and name it stony. Ganz said that name wasn't allowed. I was shocked because my other pets have even more unusual names like "puzzler". That was ok. Is this new? I haven't adopted in awhile so maybe I missed a new rule?

I also tried storm and stormy and wasn't allowed. Very disappointed. I don't want a webkinz home with a bunch of pets all named John or Alice. I was already sad about the rooms because I like to name rooms how they are decorated (ex/artic area or summer room or egyptian place). That made it so much easier to find things. Now there is nothing to name rooms anymore, not for me anyway.

I'm so sad.

The name thing has happened to me a few times. I tried to name a pet Elaine yesterday and it said that wasn't allowed. I can't figure it out!

Check out Redbear's thread ->http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...s-t386700.html <-
She has most, if not all, of the current banned letter combos listed, as well as suggestions for alternatives.

another way around it is to use zero's for o and 1 for l's
like g0ldie or she11y

So you could do St0ny
or ST0NY (zero not o)
and it should work

I tried naming my Gold/White Cat Salsa and it was it was not allowed. My dad said maybe they think it is offensive to Mexicans or something. I don't think so. Salsa is just a dance...and food I think they should be less protective. Now, I could see if you really DID use a curse word or offensive things, but I don't believe Stony, Storm, and Salsa are offensive.

LOL. Salsa is a cute name!

Unfortunately, Ganz banned "sal" - so any word with "sal" in it, is going to be banned.
