    You'd think apostrophes would be a shu'in with how prevalent they are in fantasy-sounding names. If it suffix that isn't too difficult to make, could we be allowed to use them?

    Could be something as simple as the apostrophe being the delineator for a text field... users entering apostrophes into free-text fields on the web front end of one the SQL databases I look after screw up exports

    Thank you for fixing my mistake, Garden! <3 And at such short notice too.

    This is a great start to more serious family-based RP (I hope) and I look forward eagerly to future updates. I'm sure it's no surprise that like most, I'm eager to hear if family housing will be a thing, and how that will be implemented.

    Can we please add in the option for spaces in suffixes, at least? :( Ideally also in the family name itself

    Wow 5 minutes later and spaces are in! Greedily, can we have hyphens too?  o:) I know you don't want underscores and stuff, but hyphens are seriously normal to have in last names for large parts of the world.

    Correct me if I'm ignorant of other cultures, but don't hyphens usually concatenate two different surnames or lineages? That may explain their absence, since you wouldn't really have a "House of Smith-Johnson", you would just have individuals who wore Smith-Johnson because they were related or married into the two different families, the House of Smith and the House of Johnson, which would have their separate clans. Seems awkward for one family to claim two lineages by hyphenating their actual family name.
    -- Grounded in but one perspective, what we perceive is an exaggeration of the truth.

    Anglicized Arabic names use hyphens for the al- format, and there's probably others too. You might notice why I want hyphens once you know this!

    Cut out the hyphen for 'al'. You don't need it.

    It's the standard practice and the way the surname's been worn in the game for like 10 rl years though! Going through every person that wears it to tell them how to fix it would be ridiculous.

    So as an akechi, one of the oldest families in the game, I'm bummed. Why no love for the prefix family name?

    That sounds like it would be a lot harder to code than just changing what it accepts as input, and would only affect one family.

    Could probably do it the same way emote prefixes are done (with parens), without tooooo much effort, but I dunno. The biggest issue I see with that is it could be an easy way to override house prefixes/titles.
    Huh. Neat.

    Dude you're a dick. Why even take a jab? The point is there are families who have had prefix names since the beginning of Achaea. We should be recognized too.

    Easy to code in without inhibiting organization prefixes as well and easy to designate with a little coding upon family creation.

    Bunch of newbs not knowing Akechi is a family name.

    Akechi only real family out there aside from Van Helsing, of course.
