Username fragment is blocked

Question

Hiya

I'm wanting to create a new account but some of the names trigger an error message that says "username fragment is blocked." What does this mean?

I'm only using characters and not using any phrases or words that are disallowed. I know when a username is taken, the error message will be "username exists."

Any ideas?

If its anything like marketplace listings, sometimes the oddest thing is thrown back as not being an allowed word.

Based on some testing, I'd say that some part of the username you are trying to use is on their naughty list.  Same type of words that would get *** out here in the forums.

Can you give some examples of names that are being blocked?
 

Hm there were a few but the ones I remember at the top of my head were Blueberry and adrianamori. They seem pretty PG so it's weird.
