Prevent Special Characters in First / Last Name Fields

Prevent Special Characters in First / Last Name Fields

Core

We’ve recently seen spam/hacker profiles created with “Name https://ya.ru CoolSurname”. This is causing a large number of junk accounts for our data team to clean up. To prevent mass spam profiles being created, it would be great if Rock globally prevented special characters in First/Last Name fields like we do for usernames.

    This might not be as simple as it sounds. I suspect implementing this the naive way might cause issues with internationalization later on. At the very least a single quote should be allowed for names, and I think "!" is even used for sounds not represented by the roman alphabet in some african languages.
