        You would only get alias, and rent files from previous characters.
This is simple, since your name is now no longer in the player file at all
(the old entry is replaced, as opposed to a new one, and gets written when
saved - which I'd hope you'd do when you change a name!).

        So, right on character creation, after confirmation of a new name,
just unlink the alias_file, and obj_file.

                That's what I do - else you can create a normal char,
toggle his delete, log in, create a same-named character, and have his eq.
