Basically, I want to make a naming screen with just a few preset names to chose from; of these names, you can also chose a matronym with them. Basically, I want to make sure that the player can’t pick the equivalent of John Johnson for their name, and while I’m willing to go to release without that if necessary (I mean, names like that do happen in real life), it would make certain meant-to-be-serious dialogue come off sillier than intended. It’s not a total dealbreaker, but I’d rather avoid the situation to begin with.
I’m currently using a submenu for naming, but I realize that it may not be ideal for this purpose. Dunno how else to handle it, though!
Please explain the whys behind what to do as well, I don’t retain information nearly as well otherwise.
