SL Viewer New Feature: Display Names

Display Names is a new feature currently under development. It breaks the current Second Life name into two - a unique username used to log in along with a non-unique name that is visible above your head inworld called a Display Name.

Display Names gives you more freedom than ever to express your inworld identity. You can use your real name, a fantasy name, hyphenate with your inworld partner, promote your organization or inworld business name, or anything that you want other Residents to refer to you as.

How to... and Why?
