Time it takes for names to get through the temple system
Could you give some guesstimates on how long names generally take through the temple system compared to each other?
In short, I'm looking at sharing about 1500 names with the temple to get under the limit. Very few known member relatives to reserve names. I live in a busy temple district. Obviously since the specific time varies from temple to temple, I realize that no one can give me an exact time.
But I would like to know what the general trends are as far as what reservations take longer. For example, I know that female B and Cs are the fastest, while male Es are the slowest. What does the timeframe generally look like relative to those extremes for, specifically: SS, male B and Cs, and female Es.
Also, does anyone have any ideas for how long shared names might take if/when a global share list is created that would eliminate busy temples' names from getting priority?
Thanks so much!

More importantly, the question is how long it would take you to complete these? If you keep back 300 names, complete them, and 1200 names are still sitting on your personal shared with the temple list, just pull back another 300, complete them, then pull back the next 300 and finish them, and so on.
Sharing names with the temple does not impact your access to them at all, except, of course, for the ones that might get completed before you can get to them.3

I don't know all the estimates you are wanting. But this I do know. One year ago when the temples were moving to phase 3 and I knew my temple would be months away from phase 3, I chose to move my entire "My Reservation" list to the Shared with temple list. I physically could do no ordinances in my temple district. However, ordinances were being done all over the USA as other temples were reopening in that phase. And my ordinances were being done! And these were ordinances of my convert father's relatives. Those relatives had descendants who had also joined the Church - unknown to me before I shared these names.
We are now trying to go to our phase 3 temple as often as possible and still others around the USA are completing more ordinances than I am able to.
So, yes I don't know your specific answer, but I do know this. More ordinances will be completed by others than you will be able to complete yourself once you share them with the Shared temple list.1
