It should be mentioned in the Handbook


and the man pages


that jail names should contain only numbers or letters.
Special characters and punctuation will confuse the parser.
Try to create a jail with the name, for instance, jail-bird or jail_bird.
The initialization file rc.conf will produce error messages at boot time.
