    How about using a verb 'mark' in this sentnece?

    Hi, teachers!
    Can you please see the sentence below?
    How about using a verb 'mark' in this sentence?
    Does it sound OK or awkward?
    If it sounds odd, can you explain why?

    Thank you in advance.

    Participants interested in signing up for a workshop should mark their names at the reception desk in the lobby.

    not a teacher

    Participants interested in signing up for a workshop should mark their names at the reception desk in the lobby.

    It isn't clear whether there is already a list of names at the desk, or a list has to be made up.

    If there is already a list of names you might be asked to "mark", "check", "tick" etc, your name to show your interest.

    If there is not yet a list, you are likely to be asked to "leave your name" at the desk.
    The person at the desk takes your name.
