    A world where your 'Name' must not only be registered (Your SIN) but must also be purchased.

    Think again of what would cause this, why the people would allow it, and how having a 'poor family name' vs a 'respectable name' would affect your character.
    How would nicknames be priced? How would the enforcement of the law work in daily life?
    What if you can't afford one? What are government subsidized names like?
    How does this affect population control, if at all?

    What about those down on their luck forced to swap names with an up-and-coming star from the ghettos.

    You are the reason I cuss so much!
