There isn't a character named "Spanish" in the game because the name would be a violation of the Playonline User Agreement.

While the word "Spanish" is not bigoted, hateful, or racially offensive when used to name a language, it is considered bigoted and racially offensive when used to describe a person of hispanic origin. If such a character existed, a GM would have notified the player that the name "Spanish" is not appropriate under Article 4.3e and the player would have had to change the name on the spot.
Errr.. how do you call someone from Spain then? -_-
The nick name is still fully valid.
If you want proof I will create a whole new chara name Spanish.
Then.. Latinolover should also be considered inappropiate under Article 4.3e?
Spanish is not racial nor insultive. It is the name of the language we speak. How can you say Spanish is insultive to describe someone who is from hispanic origin??
Edit: Sorry Latinolover.. nothing against you.. :p It is just that your nick came sooooo in handy :D Edited, Mon Oct 25 13:53:41 2004 by Nonomee
