    Facebook's auto system rejects my real name

    I'm trying to create a personal account on Facebook (I may add a business page later) but their system won't accept my name: "Tim Rocks"

    The best I can speculate is that they may be filtering out "Rocks" as a common verb people would choose when making up a fake name. But I would prefer to use my real name to avoid confusion with customers and others.

    Of course they have an impenetrable customer service wall.

    Wondering if anyone here has any thoughts?

    Just to be clear, "Rocks" is my real name-- I'm not trying to get away with anything.

    But that is an interesting tip--- maybe after I get "married" I could later have a "divorce".. Would be nice if they just had a help desk for situations like this. But I guess that would cut into their billions of dollars of profit.
