How To Change Your Island Name in Animal Crossing New Horizons?

Can I change my island name on Animal Crossing New Horizons? Yes! Up until now, this has been impossible to do, while many of you really want to change your island names. But you can only change your island name with mods!

We are all with you for wanting to be able to change your island name without resetting but we are pretty sure Nintendo has it set this way for this reason: If you were able to change your island name, Nintendo would also need to change each island name with each of your friends, we think this is something easy that Nintendo can do but as you see Nintendo doesn't even bother deleting old friends who have since deleted or restarted their islands, so if Nintendo can't even clean up our friend's list, there is no way in the world that Nintendo is going to spend time and resources to go into everyone's friend list and change your island name, also with the fact that you can't change your villager name either. So this is why you can only change your island name with mods and even though most of you won't be able to do this if you don't have a modded Switch.

Follow the below steps to change your island name with mods easily:

Step 1 - Get your Switch Modded and Prepare a computer because we will need to put this island save on your computer, you can't change your island name directly on your Switch

Step 2 - Save the island and then extract it from your Switch

Step 3 - Download the program named NHSE stands for Animal Crossing New Horizon save editor on your Computer

Step 4 - Access the NHSE mode and Remane your island name under Players -> Town Name (Input the name you want to change)

Step 5 - Pop the file back into your Switch and load your game up, then you will see your island has been changed
