Facebook Rejects Names of Batman, Kisser, and Pancake [washingtonpost.com]
What Caitlin wanted did not seem that hard. She had signed up for Facebook after she married, as Caitlin Shaw. Now, to make it easier for old friends to find her, she wanted to add her maiden name. Her maiden name is Batman.

HA! The few members here that know my real last name will testify to it's extreme oddness, it's WAY better than anyone's in that article (better in terms of "WOW . . . is that your real name? Come on, you're kidding me!")

It's also on the banned list. I tried to sign up a few months ago and was rejected. At the time I just said screw it, the programmers here have a case of cranial-rectal collision and I didn't give it a second thought. Now it appears it's about policy. LOL . . . .

I just tried again, but this time sent an email to support.

I wonder if Blacksmith, Jones, and Smith have the same problems? LOL . . . .

The Up-side: basically through a few emails to FaceBook, *they* created the account for me using my real name. It only took a couple days, which is light speed compared to most organizations.

So there's hope for us with odd names. :-)
