Each player can only change their for free once. After making the first free name change, changes will cost Gems. Starting at 500 Gems, the price for subsequent changes will increase so choose your name wisely! Avoid using special characters and emojis as those will disappear once you save your new name.

Also, keep in mind that Supercell reserves the right to change any names, so avoid including profanities or insults in your newly minted name. That is, unless you want to wake the next day finding your name changed to something else.
