Title: Villager names
Post by: earedtailedone on Jan 27, 2018, 05:06 pm

I would like to get creative at naming my villagers. I notice that in the base game, random villagers will end up named after one of the game developers, but most of them don't have names. I am trying to work out if it's possible to edit:

a) the list of names the game will choose from when creating new villagers, and;
b) the frequency, i.e. could I mod something so that every villager would have a name?

Thanks in advance! This forum is a fantastic resource, wouldn't have known where to start at modifying the game otherwise. :)

EDIT: I have had (some) success, messing about with this:  - the names are all in Info5 and there's a reference to them in Info2. I have successfully managed to get names of my own making appear in the game (yay!) but (a) it seems to be applying names regardless of sex, (b) all named villagers appear at 0 age, and (c) they are no more frequent than before.

thx for the post! i was wondering if it's possible to add names to the game.

i have an issue tho, i changed some names around, and then i copied the info5 txt file into the game directory. and it crashed right after it loaded the suggestions. do you know what went wrong there!? where do i have to paste the changed txt file?  :help

in case anybody is interested, i've found a program on this site that allows you to change villager's names (you can download it here:
and here is a video explaining how it works (not that it's terribly complicated xD):
