Figured since I re-subbed for a month might as well beat on this dead horse I have been griping about for years and years. You want new players but this game has been around so long that there are no names left in the system anymore. Pretty much most new toons names are statements or short sentences. It's far beyond the point of releasing names of toons that have been on inactive accounts for 5+ years. If these people haven't played in 5 years or heck make it 10 years they are never coming back. At least allow new players to actually experience the game without having to name themselves "iamanecnoobbenice" or some other such silly thing. Something like this shouldn't be all that difficult.
i would imagine in particular many of the former players would invest to get their old name back (i would do it for nothing else but my name)
can limit to toon >5y inactive or such to avoid further namestealing ...
