    My character's last name is Takahashi which is a very common name in Japan. Someone has asked me to change the name because someone else also has that last name. I don't want to do this. I haven't found anything in the name rules that says I should change the name. What do I do? I could change it, or ask them to change it, or talk about how it's a really common name and it doesn't matter or find out who joined first and whoever joined second change it. I don't care that the names are the same and am not claiming to be related to the other player's character. I am currently not roleplaying with them either. Are there any rules I should be following?

    Edit: I have now changed the name of the character Saito so unless anyone knows of a particular family with that name that is what I will stick with

    Hello, so we have family's on the server so for example like you said Takahashi, Takahashi is currently a family on the server. In order to use that last name you must go to the creator of that family and ask to join it, but if they don't want you to be apart of their family please find a new last name to use. I usually just find a last name I like then in ooc just ask if anyone has a last name of that last name you like. If you have any other questions pm me on discord. FluffyBunnyRubRub#6449. I believe you can use the last name though, Don't worry

    - James.

    Hi, I'm John- but alas! Someone else is also named John! There isn't enough room in this town for the both of us, so I shoot him. Such is life.

    Honestly, you're fine. You don't have to change anything, just ignore it unless it gets official.

    I'm a Co-Lead of the Takahashi family. It has been stated before to you that we have this last name, and you are not part of this family. Put yourself in our shoes, please. Let's say you spent your time making a family (for example, don't take the name seriously) called Redson. You spent your time getting people into this family and you really like it and it's improving. Then someone else comes along and sets their character's last name to Redson, and yet they're not a part of the family. That in itself is confusing and could cause problems. It's also a little annoying, but I don't expect you to see that as you aren't the family lead or co-lead. The Takahashi family lead has asked you to change your character's last name because you are not part of our family, and yet you have the last name. It doesn't matter that it's a common last name. SchoolRP doesn't have thousands of people logging in every day, so I'm sure you can find your own last name instead of using ours.

    I politely ask you to change your character's last name, as I don't want any future conflict that may arrise from this situation. Thank you.
    - Aether, Takahashi Family Co-Lead

    I am the Takahashi Family lead, if you are interested in joining the family then please message me on my discord below. If you do not I will kindly ask you again to change the name as I have put a lot of time into creating the family, and we even have a discord server for it. As my Co-Lead has stated, I have asked you multiple times before to change it. If you would like to check out the discord that we have worked on then please let me know. I understand the confusion, as it is a common name, but sadly we have taken it.

    I apologise for the confusion you may be feeling, but will ask again that you either message me or change the name. -Takahashi Lead.
