Change my name?

I recently just started playing FF. I had played UT2k4 for around 3 years, and was looking for something new to play. A friend of mine suggested that I try out FF as he was huge into TFC and just found out this mod exsisted. I tried it out, and I am a big fan, anyhow, on to the point.

I went into a server today that was the most populated at the time, and I play for around 10 mins, then all of a sudden, I get people asking me to change my name. When I asked what was the reason, I get the lame excuse of, "It is to close to something else." I changed my name since I wanted to keep playing in the most populated server at the time.

So my question is, am I going to be asked to change my name left and right? I mean, really? I've used this named for years and years, and no one has ever had a problem with it. In a community that is just getting its feet, it seems odd to me that people would start telling new players to change there name because they don't like, and thus making new players, not want to play.

Another things that irked me at the time, was even though my name is "close to something else", there was a player in there at the time with the name lady badass, or something close to that. That name clearly has "swear" word in it, yet she was not asked to change her name to lady bad butt or anything like that, at least be consistant.

/end rant.
