I set the listener.ora - for standby db - I am trying to implement data guard

The listener.ora look like:
SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = orcl12c)
      (SID_NAME = orcl12c)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = testDB)
      (SID_NAME = testDB)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = TESTCDB)
      (SID_NAME = TESTCDB)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = standby_test)
      (SID_NAME = standby_test)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1)
    )
  )
When I tried to start listener I got this error:
[code]

Why are you starting a listener with non-default listener name?

Which part of below do you NOT understand?
>TNS-01151: Missing listener name, standby_test, in LISTENER.ORA

>lsnrctl start standby_test
Oracle does not know what "standby_test" is since it does not exist in LISTENER.ORA file.

Issue OS command below

lsnrctl status
Copy the results from above then PASTE all back here

Why are/were you trying to start a second listener when there is already a listener configured & running on this system?

What problem are you trying to solve?

In red the name of the listener.
Please read the documentation.

I set listener.ora like this:

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = orcl12c)
      (SID_NAME = orcl12c)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = testDB)
      (SID_NAME = testDB)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1) 
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = TESTCDB)
      (SID_NAME = TESTCDB)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = standby_test)
      (SID_NAME = standby_test)
      (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2/db_1)
    ) 
  ) 
LISTENER =

        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 127.0.0.1)(PORT = 1521))
     )
  )

Now, when I started listener.ora file I got:

You still have not answered two vital questions:

1) why do you want a second listener when you already have one perfectly good listener. Remember, one single listener, with the default name of LISTENER, on the default port of 1521, is perfectly capable of -- indeed, was designed for -- servicing mulitple databases of multiple versions from multiple HOMEs.

2) why would you want a listener with a non-default name? See #1.
