Surnames To Return

Whilst we listen to rumours, we don't often publish them... but here's something that is truly worthy of a mention and from the horses mouth.

Surnames are coming back to Second Life by January!

This means we won't need to see terrible account names with masses of numbers after them, just because the persons name is Bob!

Rodvik says,  "We are trying to figure out how to do it in a way which would be excellent, rather than just ok.  We want it intuitive with extra features.  Hopefully we will roll out what we are thinking of, early January.  Identity is very important so as we touch it, we need to make sure we are adding something great". 

This immediately throws open the questions:
Will residents with unfortunate account names be able to change them?   
What is the future of display names?

Just have to wait and see I guess.
