As we were all told in the announcement regarding name changes,

"In order to ensure your name changes proceed smoothly, please make sure you are logged out of the viewer before changing your name. There may be a delay of 24-48 hours for your new name to show across all services in Second Life. "

There are many systems within SL that all need to be adjusted when you change your name. Some things change almost immediately, but others are apparently more complicated, so they take longer.  I advise waiting for a day before you panic.  Then, contact Live Chat tomorrow if you still have problems.

It can take as much as 24 hours before your changed name is recognized through all parts of SL.

it think this isn't about a name change but a display name, the official name change doesn't get announced that way.
Most likely the system did deny a fancy pancy font again.

You can only use some special characters in display names. Certain characters will cause your display name to change back.

Your issue might be different, I didn't respond to you. It is normal and expected behavior that weird characters in display names sometimes cause it to reset.
