    Just as a matter of wondering Echo, how did you come across the name? Just since I'm Irish myself, but none of the Irish people I've met ingame have had remotely Irish names...

    --edit--

    Come to thing of it, I can't remember ever seeing an Irish name in game :(

    I named my lowbie lock Aeval. She was an Irish queen. She held midnight courts in which she would punish men who weren't pleasing their wives enough.

    One thing I like about PvP servers, when you meet a guy from the other faction named "Damastatank" you can kill them.

    I was sticking around to kill him a few more times, but I think he spirit ressed and hearthed.

    I used to have a big ol' cache of neat Celtic names that I amassed while playing Hibernia in DAoC. The one I used most was Arvon, usually with the surname O'Ryan.

    They can on Mayhem missions. Of course, they're generally surrounded by angry policemen trying to kill them or the like and thus rather too busy to pose for pictures.

    Everquest got around this where if your name was found unacceptable, you would have to be logged in and a GM talking with you to get it changed. Guys like this make it seem like a good idea.. could fix a lot of repeat offenses if you were forced to justify your name to a live person.

    If nothing could be found, the GM would just put you through the random name generator and you were stuck with what you got.

    Arvon?

    The reason Siobhan strikes most people as weird is that bh is used instead of v which is not used in written Irish (for other Irish people; yes, this is debatable). Arbhán isn't a name that I'm aware of (this is far from something I know a lot about), but that's what Arvon seems to be an Anglicisation of (phonetically).

    I've never really felt the need to use Irish names for my characters, nor have any of my friends to my knowledge. That said I've seen a non zero number of such names around.

    He'll probably get away with it on the grounds of it taking 1/2 an hour with 5 keyboard layout changes to report him.

    My GF uses a lot of irish names for her characters. Has used Siobhan a few times.

    But with a last name like Noonan, it's not that surprising. She's not all that "irish" herself, but is where her family came from. Me, being culturally ignorant on pretty much everything, took quite a while to catch on. One day I asked "why do all these damn names sound the same?" and she's all "uh, duh, they're irish".
