Should I register my new Kindle under the same name as my older Kindle? What will happen to my old Kindle if I use the same name for both Kindles?

You can't have two devices on the same account with the same name. Each device on an account must have a unique name.

Sam, if you really like the name of your first Kindle so much that you want to name t he new one the same, perhaps place a 2 after it, ex: "Sam's Kindle" and "Sam's Kindle 2"

Also, a tip-- The "default" (the one seen in the menu WITHOUT having to click the menu arrow when ordering a book) lists them alphabetically. So, you may want to keep that in mind if you have a favorite device you like to download to. Sure, you can send a book to either device, but it is convenient to have your favorite device on top, well for me anyway---one less thing to click :)

Re-name the first one, then you can name your new one the original name.

If your first Kindle is "Sam's Kindle", the second one will be "Sam's 2nd Kindle". You can change those names to anything you want but they just can't be the exact same thing.

Are you asking if you should register the new Kindle to the same *account* as your old one? If so, then yes. That's the only way you will be able to access your books with the new device. You can have multiple Kindles registered to one account, and all will have access to your content.

If you're asking about the actual device names, you can change those to whatever you want.
