Name Changes Contest Winners!

Recommended Posts

 

Thank you to everyone who submitted entries to the Name Changes Contest!  We apologize that it took so long to announce the winners - but we had an overwhelming response (over 2400 Residents responded)! It was such a great list of names to go through, that it took just a bit longer than anticipated to whittle it down.  So, without further delay, I give you the first 8 (yes, 8. I couldn't narrow it down to just 5!) last names chosen for the list:

Conundrum
Dismantled
Huntsman
Littlepaws
Nova
Ravenhurst
Wumpkins
Yeetly

The winners have been notified via email, so if you suggested one of those names, be on the lookout for an email from me.

Well done to the winners, a little disappointed my suggestions didn't make the cut as I'm sure other non winners will be. However there's a mix of good names and erm not so good names that have been chosen

So if you have a certain last name you would like to use and have it changed, are you able to submit that, pay a fee for the change, or are you left with only the selected names submitted and approved by LL to chose from? I ask this, because I know a lot of couples in SL would love to share the same last name as their SL partner (which for many of us are also our RL partner/spouses) 🥰

And congratulations to the winners.

I'd've picked Wumpkins for you too, Molly, from that list.

"Lindal Ravenhurst" sounds nicely Victorian, and would go well with my Caledon persona.  But I think I'll just stick with "Kidd".

Hmmm. Bree Yeetly.... Nah! Littlepaws? No, I'm not a tiny. Maybe Rhonda Huntsman! Or Bumpkin Wumpkins... Keep going....

Congrats to all the winners though. I wish I had entered.

The real fun starts with a good first name. I've come up with:-

Cosmic Conundrum

Brokan Dismantled

Tart Huntsman

Thoughtful Littlepaws

Bossy Nova

The last three are proving harder; so far I have;-

Mad Ravenhurst

Bumpy Wumpkins

Compel Yeetly

Any further offers?

Well good to know how its set up. I'll be keeping the last name I wanted to change then and holding onto those extra Lindens. I'm paying enough for 3 premium accounts so I'll stay focused on that. 😉

Why not bring back the old last names? There is one i really like :(

They wont be back, neither will any name that has been in use by anyone ever (eg, Bob Resident becomes Bob Yeetly, you can not now become Bob Resident).

@Keira Linden That's an interesting group of names.  I especially like Littlepaws, which should be popular with Tinies. :)  Just a note on the posting though - it appears in Dark Mode as black text on charcoal, which is a bit hard to read.

[Insert bitter comment about these winners all being worse than my suggestions here.]

I'm not actually serious... well, maybe a little bit... :P

Yes, it was announced back in mid-December.  There was a Linden blog post about it.

I would like to use my last name for my man's toon. But probably be a headache in the back-end of things.

I'm almost tempted to get Littlepaws. Ravenhurst and Nova are great, too.

Some of the choices are meh but to each their own.

Any chance that non-winning name suggestions will show up as last names in the future? I can't imagine they are all now off limits to being used by LL.
