Animal Crossing Island Name Ideas

Your island's name in Animal Crossing is a crucial part of its identity and, since it can't be changed later, you must choose wisely.

Before we dive into all the juicy ideas and name recommendations, you should know a few things.

  1. Your island's name can be only 10 characters long, including spaces!
  2. Other players visiting your island will be able to see your Island's name, so make sure it doesn't include any personal info or vulgar slangs.
  3. Although Nook says that the name will go up for a vote, your name will always come out on the top. No matter what you decide to name it, the NPCs will love it! That's what they are programmed for.

Now that's out of the way, here are some amazing Animal Crossing island name ideas:
