Animal Crossing: New Horizons is all the rage these days, what with the self-distancing and the staying home and the COVID-19. (Seriously, STAY HOME people!) And why shouldn’t it be? You basically get to do everything virtually that you can’t do IRL like go to the store, walk up to people and chat with them from a less than 2 meter/6 feet distance, and fly to exotic destinations!

There’s one big hurdle though, to starting your Animal Crossing: New Horizons home away from home — coming up with the perfect island name.
