New Last Names Added

On 1st April 2021 Linden Lab announced two new limited edition last names which are only available until Thursday 8th April 2021. The reason for these new limited edition last names is “in appreciation of our Anthro/Furry community in Second Life”. Woooot! 🙂

Linden Lab mentioned in the blog post that they will continue to make additional updates to the available last names pool soon. I have highlighted the new ones in yellow above and hopefully the next lot of last names will stay in the available last names pool for longer.

I wonder what other new last names the lab will come up with next.

Additionally, three names are being made available for purchase in honor of Second Life’s 17th Birthday theme:

These three names will be retired in the next round of updates, so if you’re interested, be sure to grab them while they’re available!

We will continue to make additional updates to the available last name pool, so if these options aren’t for you, stay tuned for future updates. 

What do you think of these last name options ?

Last Names Launching In A Matter Of Weeks


Ebbe Altberg CEO of Linden Lab has said this week on Twitter that we can expect to see last names launch in a matter of weeks. Not months. It’s very close apparently.

The lab could be launching this around the Easter period at best estimates. Probably more likely before the end of April 2020. Anything later than that is not good enough.

 

More updates soon.
