    You can try, but I believe it's still limited to people on Nao with the +server tags.

    I wonder? Could you change Buttmunch55+Tarlach, say, to Buttmunch55+Alexina, just for esses-and-gees?

    But that would be a waste of the one time name change.

    Depends on what the owner considers a waste. They might live for confusing the folks around them.

    You can't use the special characters when changing your name, so no.

    Also they said that some time after free name changes they would start selling name change coupons. I have no idea why they haven't put it up for sale yet. There has been plenty of time for those affected by the merge to call dibs on their names.

    name changing is relied on game's database structure, mabinogi does not support that in a good way. In some mmorpgs, there are only invisible-to-player character unique codes that are carried for every need of reference so names are like something simply cosmetic, as if it is your gear that you can modify. They are having trouble with merge because of that bad structure of data with character names having significance, which shouldn't exists in the first place in my opinion as a mmorpg dev.

    It should already be valid thing for years but sadly that name change coupon idea is currently incompatible and needs a well-prepared work around.
