Thanks CCP Paragon for confirming this is in fact not something CCP allows.
Original post below:
This was always one of those things that was absolutely taboo, changing names was never something that could be done on demand. But as you can see from this thread, a character being offered for sale had an undesirable name so they requested CCP change the name so they could push up the price and sell the character.
People like to talk about how they want to preserve the fabric of EVE, but it’s things like this they should be questioning as this is something that has been core to EVE since the beginning. Letting someone change a character name for profit seems way over the line.
