How to Change Your Name in Clash of Clans


If you are unhappy with your name in Clash of Clans, you can change it as many times as you want.
The first change is free but subsequent name changes will cost you at least 500 gems.

Clash of Clans continues to be one of the most dominant titles in the mobile gaming market despite releasing over a decade ago. If you have a name that you have been using for a while and want to switch to something different, you can do so directly from the game itself. The first name change is free while subsequent name changes will cost you Gems. If you don't have enough Gems, you might be able to earn a few from achievements or other activities.

How much does it cost to change your name in Clash of Clans

When you change your name for the first time, it costs you nothing. For your second name change, you will need to pay 500 gems. And it keeps on adding another 500 gems to the cost for subsequent name changes. So if you change your name 21 times, you need to pay a whopping 21,000 gems.

Clash of Clans: How to change your name

Here's how you can change your name in-game on any platform:

  1. Open the Clash of Clans app on your device.

  2. Make sure you are logged into the game with the village for which you want to change the name.

  3. Locate and tap on the "Settings" icon, typically represented by a gear or cogwheel. It is usually located in the top right or left corner of the screen.

  4. In the settings menu, look for an option called "Change Name" or "Name Change." Tap on it.

  5. A confirmation window will appear, explaining that changing your name will cost you a certain amount of gems. Gems are the premium currency in Clash of Clans, and you'll need enough gems to cover the cost.

  6. If you have enough gems and are willing to spend them, confirm the name change. Enter your desired new name in the provided field.

  7. Once you've entered the new name, double-check it for any spelling errors or mistakes. Remember that name changes are permanent, and you won't be able to change it again easily.

  8. After confirming your new name, the game will deduct the required amount of gems from your account and update your name immediately.

If you don't have enough gems, you can acquire them by completing in-game achievements, clearing obstacles from your village, or purchase them by using real money through in-app purchases. It's important to keep in mind that changing your name too frequently may confuse your clan members or friends, so choose a name you're satisfied with.
