Idea for preventing bot sign-ups please shopify

Hi guys, no doubt every store owner with shopify experiences the spam style customer account sign-ups with the duplicate names such as;

DeangeloarofJeoge DeangeloarofJeoge

Williamskapy Williamskapy

BalhalaarofJeoge BalhalaarofJeoge

This is of course, not unique to shopify but any site with accounts. In another cart, we stumped it at least for the meantime by adding a new entry to the signup that the bot was not expecting (e.g. date of birth) - this is not what I am suggesting but since the bot accounts seem to have the same first name and last name, could shopify not take action to stump/confuse bots by not allowing the same first and last name when people sign up? It might stop them for a while at least.

 

Can anyone from Shopify comment if this might be possible or at least is Shopify taking any action to stop these prolific spam sign-ups? It shouldn't be a matter of having to pay for an app, surely stopping them is something important for every store. People have been posting about it on the forums for a long time and the only response is pay for this or that app.

Ugh.. I didn't intend to post this under apps, just general discussion - any mods in here to move it? lol
