We have been very pleased to see the response to the return of last names back in April. The response thus far has been mostly positive, with some residents opting to wait for names that feel more personal to them.
Much as we did with the original legacy surnames, we plan to update and change the available last names regularly. That way, a good variety of first and last name combinations are available at any given moment. We are taking a number of factors into consideration on making the decision about when to change up the names, most importantly how popular, or unpopular, a name is.
Today, we are announcing the retirement of some of the last names from the first round.
Effective Thursday, June 25 the following names will no longer be available for purchase:
All residents that have purchased name changes using these last names will retain ownership of the name, but no more additional purchases of these names will be available.
If you wish to claim one of these last names for yourself, now is your last chance! Be sure to do so no later than Wednesday, June 24th, as the names will no longer be available for purchase.
Simultaneously, ten new last name options will be made available for purchase. These new names will be announced upon release, so stay tuned!
