I have been vacillating over changing my name. I don't like it that it shows up as Bagnu here in the forums. It's a random thing I picked, and never realized that it would be used for anything other than a login. I'm Pearl Sextoy. I keep asking myself if the cost of the name change is worth it. I have the $ to do it. Opinions anyone???

In just my opinion you can set something more beautiful than just sextoy. Even if you do escort(you do?,if I remember right',lol).Last name you choose is nice if you are in afk sex club or something like that:)Pearl is good anyway:)but don't seem to fit sxtoy anyways

You will need to take a look at the list of last names available to see if there is one that you like - you can only choose a last name from the provided list. (You can see the list of last names available by going to Account -> Change Name - Next Step on the web dashboard, and you can do that without committing to do a name change). 

Another option - if none of the last name choices appeal to you - would be to just change your first name from "Bagnu" to "PearlSextoy".  You would still have the mostly never seen "Resident" as a last name portion, but that would probably be the closest you could get otherwise to the name you prefer to go by. 

 Or choose Pearl with one of the provided last name choices and keep your display name as "Pearl Sextoy".

It’s going to cost $50+ usd to change it.  To have a last name different from resident will cost that at minimum if that’s the only purpose (I know it’s not in your case)

So to change your first name, would it cost less to just create a new account if you don’t care about a last name?  To rebuild your inventory that you regularly make use of?

That would be your consideration.

i want to change my first name to Shasta, but I haven’t because it’s not worth it to me (I have a legacy last name from 2009).  I would only do it if I could create my own last name.  Which I can’t.  So I will just continue to use the inworld name changer....

 

edit—— I saw your last name of sextoy- is that a legacy name from before resident? (I thought your inworld name was Bagnu resident- to explain my nonsense comment)

my suggestion would be to go thru the available last names matching them with Pearl and see if any of them work for you

if not then just wait until the next batch of names is released. Is what I am doing, waiting for a last name that jumps off the list at me, so far nothing but am hopeful for the next batch

You can't choose your own last name; you have to select one from a short list, or leave it as "Resident" (which is more or less the same thing as having no last name). 

So if you want to have the name you're looking for, it would have to be "PearlSextoy Resident", and you'll still have to use the Display Name feature to separate the name into two words.

I really like Pearl Enchantment. I wouldn't change my inworld name though, because I'm an Escort, and I DO enjoy being a Sextoy!!! 

I agree that LL likely wouldn't accept that last name. SO, It will have to be Pearl or Pearl Enchantment, unless someone can think of something better!!!

I think Pearl Enchantment or Pearl Sassypants would be great...which one would depend on whether you're more the glamour or gamin type.

I am definitely glamour!!! High class expensive.

Well then, spend some of those ill-gotten gains!

I've changed my name and all my alts (one a month).  Did the last one this week.  Very happy with the result.

if you really like it then suggest you grab it.  At any time somebody else can take it (if they haven't already) and then you might end up kicking yourself

a name like Pearl Enchantment is kinda classy.  Displayname then becoming a titler affectation to go low or even lower as you prefer and as the mood takes you

Pearl Enchantment is a lovely choice, and I agree with @Mollymews; if you want it, grab it now before someone else does. Pearl on its own Pearl Resident) is almost certainly long-gone.

I wasn't going to change mine until I found out that the one name I really wanted was still available with "Resident", and the one single last name I would consider will never be on the list as it's protected by copyright. When I found out that "Maitimo Resident" was available I took it immediately because I knew that if someone else got it, I would regret it for ever.

Getting rid of last names was the silliest thing LL ever did. I say grab one. You can always wear Sex Toy as a title. But if ya slap it ova ya head, ya gotta EARN it!

I remeber when you could tell when someone started by their last name. Hehehehehe I remember when Lane was a NOOB last name. Like Babii or whatever it was. Get you a last name and BE somebody! Be a sex toy too if ya want. Ain't nothing wrong with that!

Before I do anything I'll make an alt. It'll let me see what choices are available.

Keep in mind, checking what names are available during account creation only shows you what combinations with the "Resident" are available. If you chose to use the paid service to rename your current account, a name that might be taken with the normal "Resident" account names, could be still available for you, since your combination of first and chosen lastname from the list could still be unique.

I've already earned it!!! How do you think I got the money to pay for a name change lol??? I removed my credit card, so I have to earn my $L inworld!!! Covid made me have to be a bit more frugal in RL!!!!

I feel bad for RL Escorts now. Their business is basically dead from what I have heard.

Uhm... your entire thread is about the (new) paid name change service, which includes the option to pick a lastename from a list. I thought you knew that, since you talked with people about nameing yourself Pearl Enchantment. Enchantment is one of the names from the list.

What Jumpman is talking about is the old way of how you created an account. Any account made before winter of 2010 had both, a first and lastname. Thats why I'm Syo Emerald. I had picked Emerald from a list of then provided lastnames. Not long after I joined, the system got changed and this step has since been critized by many.
