Issues with a name having ' ^ ' after it

So having ^ in the end of your name has some slight issues. Only places where it shows correctly are game options and limbo menu. For example I have set my name as "boi^" but after renaming, console shows that I changed my name into "boi". When hovering my cursor with another client over the player, it shows as "boi" instead of "boi^". \players show it as "boi" and the list goes on. And using \dumpuser needs the whole name "boi^" and since it’s not shown for the server host, he might not know about that ^ which he can’t see.

There’s also one case where you can see the whole name "boi^" when you get kicked by too many complaints. Then it’s shown. (see the screenshot).
