Many people choose a name for use with the Jedi community. There are many reasons for this, but it is not a requirement of training. In the past it was rare to know a person’s real name. Now that so many utilize facebook it’s quite common to know real names. Feel free to use whatever name you’d like, so long as you follow a few simple rules.
1. Don’t use a common name from fiction. No Luke Skywalkers or Ben Kenobis please. We aren’t role players.
2. Don’t use rank in your name. Even if you have a rank granted from the Institute, it is inappropriate to use it as your display name.
3. Don’t use offensive or disrespectful terminology.
4. Do think about how you will be referred to. Your display name becomes your name, and we will call you by it most of the time, so long as it makes some sense.
