Naming an Item (in General)
Will Naming a base item, weapon or armor, increase that item to the point where it would be too large for a new characters Encumbrance? I'm thinking of running a MsK Archer as my next NCB but also naming every single item on the character and trying to figure out if I'll be able to do this immediately from the start of if I'll have to wait.

naming doesn't do anything to ENC
Naming doesn't increase the net worth.

The naming doesn't add to the NW. So provided the base NW isn't too big you should be able to use it from the start.

Naming doesn't increase NW, thus not increasing Encumbrance.

A few people use this to their advantage in the very early part of the game.
They name a base item, therefore getting x150 "free" and use that in the beginning.
Using 100 dexterity for BTH hits and the naming for damage, one can pick targets to get a 100% challenge bonus for a while without having any PR addition from your weapon.

But remember Mr. Burns, Homer will always find a way to ruin your evil plan.
