    Well, most of them are vowel symbols. Spelling my five letter name in kanji only uses 3 characters.

    My real name is 9 letters long...
    Zephy fits though.

    Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.

    My real name is four letters long, and I tend to choose short Japanese names for my player characters, mostly the official ones.

    So... um, no, can't say I've encountered that problem.

    As someone who has a six-letter name, I never knew the character limit for PC names was only seven characters. Wow. They really should fix that. XP

    My name's five letters long, and putting it in katakana still leaves it at five symbols long.

    But I share the sentiment. I used to be friends with a girl with eight letters in her name. Not many RPGs'll fit that ; ; Final Fantasy VII and Tactics were champions. (She didn't like her name shortened. But we're not friends anymore, and now she only goes by the shortened version. Hmm...)

    If you're a BurningLeafShipper, let me know that I'm not alone. People who've messaged me so far: 10

    Couldn't you use "Jon"?

    I mean, that's what I'd use, if I ever used my name in a Pokémon game.

    My name is only four letters (well duh, look at my username), but I never even knew that seven was the limit. They really should make it longer.

    I have six letters in my name. But I never use my real name in game anyways, so it's never a problem.

    I have eight letters in my name, but everyone calls me by my nickname and it's three letters. So no, I don't have a problem.
