When last names come out again, people with only one name will look down at people with last names as noobs... 

It has been prophesied that a boy will arrive in SL with a scar on his left arm only. This boy will bring about the coming of last names!  We must wait and keep watch for such a boy. For there are res

SL got rid of last names by misinterpreting user behavior data.  People with existing avatars would start the create-avatar process looking for an new last name for their alt, and exit the process if

And you are not likely to, unless someone sets it as a Display name.  If you look at https://slnamewatch.com/ to see the history of legacy names, you will not find a single Zehetbauer among them.  You are unique!

In world search shows 47 accounts with last name Zehetbauer are still active.

SLNameWatch said there were over 10K registered

Ooo!   I must have misspelled it.  Yup, you're right. Of course, that whole site hasn't been updated for much of the past decade, so there's no telling how many are still with us, but at least we know now that there really were lots of Zehetbauers once.  Thanks, Rhonda.  ;)

 Although we Loons wave silently at a distance, we have never tried to do a reunion (or maybe the others just didn't invite me).   We aren't a big party crowd. 

Funnily enough, all the Lumin...aires I've met have been DJs or club hosts or club owners. I am none of those things at present but I have been, and I am usually IN a club somewhere, when I'm online. So I guess we ARE a party crowd.

Pay attention to the last updated dates ....

Further, it is useless in some ways for names that circulated prior to the site creation: Look at mine for an example.

Even so there should have been more than 3000 Residents by 2016.

I am, as I figured, literally the only Field in SL. Almost nobody picked that name and certainly none of those elite few are active these days. Or well, they weren't the last time SLnamewatch updated. I doubt that has changed.
 

... The secret is I wish I'd picked something more exciting. So I'd be changing mine regardless of any possible prestige from having an old and extremely rare name.

There were, but the site hadn’t been updated for years by then. If the bot collecting the data was even still working by then, the number of Resident accounts exceeded its capacity a very long time ago.

If the date opens and date closed are Unknown, then we are officially SL Oldbies. For real. Because we are so old the system didn't even exist yet! Bahahaha!

The lab says it's in the works and there will be updates soon on the return of Last Names. I'm guessing we may hear something before the end of 2019 or early 2020. 

More to come!
There’s more in the works, too! Stay tuned for updates on when to expect the return of Last Names, availability of a new mobile app beta, changes to Premium options, improvements to Events, Search, the Destination Guide, and much more.

"Second, we’re extremely pleased to say that in the last month we’ve made significant progress in laying the foundations for the long-awaited Name Changes feature.  All of our teams have been working hard on preparing the grid and all of our systems to accommodate account name changes, both first and last. We’re not quite ready to release all the details yet, but suffice to say that if you’ve ever wanted to change up your account name for whatever reason (and we know you have!) STAY TUNED."

Now, I have to wonder if "in last month we’ve made significant progress in laying the foundations for the long-awaited Name Changes feature", what was going on the other 528 days? Drooling on the keyboard?
