A villager using a nickname on a player in New Horizons.

A nickname is a form of address and term of endearment towards the player, used by villagers with high friendship. On occasion, a villager may ask the player if they can start addressing them by a randomly chosen nickname. If the player accepts, the villager will use that nickname to address the player in every conversation. There is a chance that other villagers will eventually start using the same nickname too. If the player declines, the villager will either become upset, or ask for a new suggestion. The player is given the option of inputting a custom nickname that the villager will use.

Sometimes a villager will start using a random nickname without asking the player. The nicknames chosen by villagers depend on their gender and personality, and certain nicknames are also dependent on the player's gender. Some nicknames will automatically include the first letter of the player's name, and it is also possible for a villager to simply use only the player's initial as their nickname.

List of nicknames[edit]
