    My irl name has 5 letters, but I've never used it in any of my Pokemon games.

    I usually switch up the names I use for my Pokemon games... they're generally 4-7 characters long, or if I'm playing a Japanese game, 3-4 characters long (Although all I've used on my Japanese games so far is "Raina" and planning to name my HeartGold character "Odoroki" <3)

    I think the full list of what I've used so far is:
    Nenar, Tina, Aurora, Leona, Tanya, Raina... um... you can probably tell that I've only played as female characters in the games so far XD;

    Colosseum: Julian (6 letters) (Sidekick: Leah, 4 letters)
    XD: Nick (4 letters)
    FireRed: Kyle (4 letters)
    LeafGreen: Jackie (6 letters)
    Emerald: Ivan (4 letters)
    Diamond: Twilite (7 letters) (It would have been "Twilight", but that exceeds the character limit)
    Pearl: Maya (4 letters)
    Platinum: Frossen (7 letters)
    HeartGold: Sarah (5 letters)
    SoulSilver: Ben (3 letters)

    At the risk of going off topic, may I ask what in particular spurred on any of these names?

    They sound like generic names to me.

    I usually name my character Orion, which is just 5 letters. If I used either my real name or my OC's name, it still fits. When a girl, I like to call her Mia, so it also fits.

    Yeah, can't say I've found the same problem, but I think they should make the name of your character the same length as Pokémon's nicknames at least (10), to avoid problems. It can't be that hard, but maybe there could be some issues if it was changed. I dunno.

    I never use my name,I do not associate myself with the people I play in games. They are like people in my books,they are not me.

    I've never had trouble with names,but I've had times when I had to change a Pokemon's nickname since it was too long.

    It might have something to do with the fact that the Japanese language uses characters that could mean either letters, phonetic sounds or entire words. I can't really think of a Japanese given name that would be ten characters long when written in Katakana. Possibly romanji though.

    For instance, Satoshi only uses up three characters in Katakana, one for each sylable.

    of course, it all comes back to the fact the games are Japanese and thus do not fit our wishes.

    I don't have this problem since my name is Jasper. But in another game I was only allowed to name myself with 5 letters. So I used Johan, from my middlename Johannes there ;) you should just call yourself Jona in the games

    my younger sister has five letters in her name, too, and five in her internet nickname that she's been identifying with lately, and my dad has five letters in his name..wtf. something is not right here.

    LOL

    How curious you are the OP of this thread, 'cause, you know what? My name is also Jonathan (so I didn't even bothered reading the rest of the thread XP). Luckily it's only one space missing, because in Spanish (my mother language), the H letter doesn't have any sound, so the name "Jonathan" is actually pronounced "Jonatan", which is how I name my male characters usually. Sometimes I call them Johnny, however. Or Veggie, my nickname.


    EDIT: Now that I've read it

    Zephy fits though.
    What's your real name? It's not too common to have long names.

    Seeing as my real name is exactly seven letters, that's never been an issue for me. My brother, on the other hand, has the misfortune of having just one letter too many in his name. It's kinda funny, really.

    I have seven letters in my name (Nichole), so I just fit the limit.
