Latin is forbidden on xbox?

I tried changing the motto on my xbox gamer tag to "Ad astra, per aspera." It means, 'To the stars, through hardship.' But xbox doesn't like this:


I can understand disallowing expletives, but latin? I'm guessing they must be screening with a white list, since none of the words are english. Pretty lame.

Perhaps it just "knows" that the motto in common usage is "Per Ardua Ad Astra" (the motto of the Royal Air Force and the Air Forces and Air Commands of Commonwealth nations), and is merely objecting to your restatement of same. Them com-pewter thangs is pretty smart.
