Do you judge characters based off names?

General
Just curious if others are like me and do this.

I'm happy for people to have any kind of name they like and I don't think and rules should be in place about naming your characters (apart from the obvious) but when I see someone with stupid names (imo) like "Hotdogs" or "fartman" I instantly want nothing to do with them.

Anyone else feel this way?
And if so does it go as far as not inviting people to groups or joining guilds because of it?

I like greek and roman mythology so most of mine named after that :P but when i see people like voidelfman and edgelord illildandandk i personally wouldnt have anything to do with said person.
I know its only fun but you just know its some 13-18year old boy thinking its cool.
The person could be really nice behind the name and if the can prove they don't have the mental capacity of an ant i will welcome them until then they are shunned.
I wouldn't join a guild with a stupid name, lol.

As for the character names, I wouldn't discriminate people based on it, but someone who has a random amalgam of words projects to me that it's one of those people who don't really care about immersion or lore, just gameplay. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it is just not my thing.
So my name you would avoid

Yours isn't insultingly bad to me so I wouldn't avoid but I would try to avoid having to say it :P
Although I do think that D is more suited to a hunter ;)
I try not to, but I stumble a little over special characters in names that don't normally contain those. I don't mind humorous names, though, so some male Worgen named Hotdog wouldn't repel me.
I get judged for being on RP realm all the time ;p

Then they realised that my name is usually from an anime.

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°)
I don't take myself that seriously, so I couldn't care any less what you name your character which is why I wouldn't judge you base on it.

Wait, people assume you're from an RP realm or are you on an RP realm and people don't like your name on there?
I'm confused :P
Most of the time I dont really care but when I see a an anime name like "Kirito" I just roll my eyes.

I did pick my name of my char when I was 16 and tipsy or more.
Plz don't judge. I'm nice! Promise!
