ArenaNet has just released an article about name reservation in GW2 . If you have the original game and want to reserve a particular name for GW2 you’ll want to make sure that you’ve logged in and claimed the name. This only applies to two word (or greater) names as the original Guild Wars requires at least two names. Single word names will all be up for grabs during the pre-launch and on launch day. The deadline for name reservation will be July 31.
