Is using non-ASCII characters in names allowed / recommended?
For example my first name is Paweł and I'd like to have it that way if possible.

I just tried posting a name change request. I got The first name you entered is not valid error message. So I think it's not possible.

Indeed. That's strange, using umlauts and accents used to work. We'll take a look.

We have a fix for this, which we plan to push to production in our next deployment.

Pawel, we expect this to be fixed now. Can you please send in the name change request?
