If I delete a character, I can't use that name anymore?

I deleted a character, because I wanted to remake it, but now it says the name is taken. Which is kinda impossible, since I just deleted it, I don't think someone would claim the name already, it wasn't even a common name or such... Does it mean I can't use the names of the characters' I delete? Thank you for the answers.

    Currently yes, that is the situation. It's not supposed to be that way though. It used to be possible to re-use names of deleted characters. PWE was going to get around to fixing it, but it hasn't happened yet.

    I deleted a few characters, and I noticed I can't use any of their names anymore.. It always says it's taken. But I'm pretty sure they aren't. So those names are 'lost', or what? thank you.

    Currently we cannot re-use names of deleted characters. This is something that should not be happening but started happening after the roll-back. When they actually get to fixing it I don't know. You can try sending in a ticket to Support to see if they have the power to let you re-use any specific names.

    Ohh joy. I deleted a bunch of characters just to remake them with the same name. But well, thank you for the answer and I hope it gets fixed soon.
