    Is this intentional or is it a quirk of the software?

    I think it is intentional, to avoid people calling themselves things that imply they are part of the staff, or are endorsed by the forum in some way.

    if that is the case, then the words moderator or admin would also be banned - is that so ?

    Perhaps forum moderators have special naming permissions set up on their accounts?

    Of course, I know nothing about how forum software works so I could be talking nonsense...
