What’s up with the four digits at the end of the display name?

Your display name is a unique account identifier that consists of a name and a randomly generated four-digit code. You’ll use it on the Forums, and in Guild Wars 2 after launch. The name and four-digit code will be your handle on the Forums. The four-digit code does not appear in the game itself unless another player chooses the same name, in which case both your name and the four-digit code will appear.

How do I change my Display Name?

Please be aware that the ability to change your Display Name is not currently available, however, we intend to have a feature that will allow you to do so at a later date.
