Unicode characters in display names can cause problems. They're also a hassle for everyone else because they're often difficult to read and people can't find them using SL's search functions because nobody knows how to type them in. Hosts and hostesses at clubs hate them for that very reason. There's no way to type "Hello ????????? ???? ?????" because keyboards don't have those characters. That forces people to look at your username, run to your profile, copy your display name and then return to chat. That's a surefire way to send yourself to the back of the queue at clubs.

I recommend using plain old text.

There are fonts and words that are banned. I do not know of any list of the banned fonts and words. Display names with any of those will reset. 

If you use plan text and it resets, then you need to contact support. A little digging in the forum shows some 2011 problems where this problem was happening to others.
