If I changed my name, would I be able to change back to my old name ever, or would it be "out of the name pool" forever? This is all consideing I have enough force.

Er, I haven't tried it myself really, but as far as I'm aware, you can change your name as often as your force allows and into any name that isn't taken already.

So if someone cunningly took your name right after your change, then you couldn't change back I suppose. Other then that, you should be fine. smile

Nah, but I think it's like Sollthar said, you can change your name as long as you have the force and the name isn't occupied. What did you think of changing your name to?

Yeah, right after the website update I changed my name, not knowing it would require 50 force to change it back. Anyway, I did end up changing it back, and noone stole my name. I mean, look at Aculag. Some John Travolta name and some FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF name.

You'll be fine.

But I'll laugh at you if you change your name to that joke.
