As said over and over many times, English is not my mother tongue.  It's not easy to always find the exact right words to not offend anyone in a language that is not your own.

 

Always take into consideration that not everyone on the Internet knows all the finesse of a language before taking offense in something someone says.

I understand now, Crinrict, since you have explained it, that it was not meant to sound as harsh as it came across. I have not been reading all of your posts, so this is the first I have heard that English is not your first language. You could have fooled me, as you sound very fluent in your responses. That is a compliment. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

I had a several but I can't remember them except for two. "Flufflebottom" is one of them. I try to make up silly names when doing mine as generic ones get rather dull but apparently "-bottom" is a "bad word". The other one of "Snuffaluffagus" (taken from Sesame Street that I came up with on the fly). I'm assuming it was the letter arrangement "-*-" in the name that triggered it. I mean, I can understand some words like as it IS a "teen" game but come on now.

Hmn....Then they must have fixed it since then as I had done in a long time ago when SIms 4 was first released. Nice to know I can use it now. =)

The name Cona was disallowed, and I'm not sure why.

Steven Stone's original japanese first name, Daigo, is disallowed.

And for some odd reason, hyphenated last names prevent households from being saved.

So I was trying to make a name of a retail  (I made it for the new game pack Dine Out coming out ) Le Bristo Monte Cristo and it wouldnt let me post it. found out the word Cristo is banned which means Christ in portuguese. Why is that a banned word?! I only wanted to use it because it was catchy. It wasnt for religious reasons. But not its Bristo monte Bristo (-___-)
