Guidelines for naming Private Regions

Follow these guidelines when naming your Private Region (island) or estate! The proposed name:

  • Must not already be in use;
  • Must be more than 2, but less than 26 characters (spaces count);
  • Must contain three words or less;
  • Must use only alphanumeric characters (no punctuation);
  • Must not be the name of a real life city (however "New York Island" or "Los Angeles City" are fine);
  • Cannot include SL, Linden, Linden Lab, Second Life etc in the name;
  • Must comply with General maturity rating guidelines

Do not use the following as a Private Region name or estate name:

  • The name of another person to the extent that it may cause deception or confusion;
  • A name which violates any trademark right, copyright, or other proprietary right;
  • A name which may mislead other users to believe you to be an employee of Linden Lab;
  • A name which Linden Lab deems in its discretion to be vulgar or otherwise offensive (obscenities in any language and however spelled; language that is racist, sexist or otherwise derogatory in nature).

Linden Lab reserves the right to change Private Region and estate names as we see fit.
