If it says 'Name rejected' when checking for you name is there a possibility that this name will be released or is it just not allowed?


Name rejected essentially means the name is not allowed to be taken. Either Jagex Support is protecting the username, or the name has been banned for RWT or something else very serious. Those banned by RWT for example are names that do not appear on your friend list when you try to add them e.g. "Unable to add player - unknown player.".

But keep in mind, that since the name release is active these several weeks, if a name starts with a letter that has not been released yet and has that message, there is a possibility that the name can be taken when that starting letter has been released.

What are the requirements for a name to be released? I was going for an 'L' name yesterday, from somebody that hasn't leveled a skill since 2010...


If an account is F2P and has been inactive for at least 6 months, name gets released. If the account has membership, it needs to be inactive for at least 2 years for the name to be released.

In your case, the player that owns the account probably logged in for a second after Jagex warned him/her that their name will be released if they do not login soon.

I have a name which starts with the Q, its not listed in the hiscores. How can I be sure it will be released?


Due to the current state of the name changing system, there is no knowing whether a username in the upcoming name release is either banned or is going to be released. You'll have to wait until the Q names are released to find out unfortunately.
