5 Easy Ways to Create The Perfect Animal Crossing Island Name

3. Strike Fear Into The Hearts of Visitors

Okay, okay, if I didn’t reel you in with the cutesy tactic, then let’s go the complete opposite direction. Goth Babes unite, and let’s bring some darkness into the Animal Crossing world. How about Witches’ Lair? Circe’s Island, otherwise known as Aeaea (Hmmm, too highbrow? Wikipedia is your friend) Let’s go even darker: Demonic Infestation, and try to plant only black and blue flowers. Get creative with it!

4. Steal From Your Favorite Books/TV Shows/Movies/Other Video Games

Hey, maybe you don’t have a creative bone in your body. It’s okay, some of us don’t like to exert ourselves with thinking up cool Animal Crossing island names, because we have more important things to do like binge-watch Tiger King on Netflix. If that’s the case, feel free to borrow some already created names from your fave media sources:

  • The Hellmouth (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
  • Hogwart’s Academy (Harry Potter)
  • Old Yharnam (Bloodborne)
  • Camp Crystal Lake (Friday the 13th)
  • Professor Xavier’s Academy (X-men)

5. When All Else Fails, Go With Puerile

In the end though, sometimes it all comes down to wanting to be as childish and gross as possible. Honestly, we’ve all played a multiplayer game and run into someone with a gamertag that makes us chuckle because it’s undisputedly horrible. Those tend to be the most memorable names because… they’re just so incredibly bad they end up being good! Of course, you’ll have to get somewhat creative since Animal Crossing is billed as a family game. Here’s some suggestions for you. I’m not going to explain them for you, if you wanna know, Google it — if you DARE!

  • Lemon Party
  • PPnoTP Island
  • Regina rhymes with —
  • Chocolate Starfish

In the end, you can pick any name for your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island and it won’t matter, because playing the game, you’re probably going to end up pressing B every time any of the villagers talk anyway and you won’t even really see your island name. So just type in 123456 or FFFFFF and get on that island and shake some trees. Tom Nook’s never-ending mortgage train is waiting!
