I see now why the outgoing message is an issue for you, unfortunately I don't have any advice on this one. I'll let you know if I think of anything.
So characters that have been renamed have brackets around them for now. But could change things, so that they change name again once they realise they're a duplicate.

One idea I did have was if there was a way to overwrite the/tell command with a custom one, but I don't know if that's possible?
