If you're like many other Clash of Clans players who started the grind way back in the good ol' days, you can find yourself wondering why younger you chose such an interesting name. Lucky for you, there's a way to change your name! Listen closely...

How To Change Your Clash of Clans Name

Changing your nickname in Clash of Clans is easy and can be done from in-game, simply follow these instructions:

  1. Open the in-game Settings window (bottom right above the Shop button)
  2. Select More Settings (bottom right corner)
  3. Choose Change Name from the options available
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to change your name.

Tips To Remember

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.

Finally, Supercell will not change your name upon request. All name changes need to be done manually in the application itself.
