Animal Crossing New Horizons is full of things you can customise, name or change as you like. At the very beginning of the game, for example, you should name your island. But what if you want to change the name as it passes? In this article you will learn the answer to this question.

Can you change the name of your island in Animal Crossing New Horizons?

Unfortunately, you will not be able to change the name of your island after you name it at the very beginning of the game.

Once you start the game and choose a place for your tent, Tom Nuk will appear and ask you to name the island. You can give him any name no longer than ten characters long, so think carefully about this point, because there will be no going back.

Of course, you can start the game again to name the island differently. We do not recommend to do this if you have already spent at least an hour of your time on the game, because it just doesn’t make sense.

It’s quite possible that in the future Nintendo will release a patch that will include the option to change the name of your island, although it’s not really necessary in general.
