Like other games, Minecraft players can also keep usernames for their in-game characters. In a single-player world, usernames are pretty useless but are helpful on multiplayer servers.
Gaming usernames are a great way to stand out from other players on multiplayer servers. When creating a Minecraft account, players have to create an in-game username. Once a username is selected, players cannot change it for the next 30 days.
Due to Minecraft's massive player base, newcomers face problems while creating a username as many usernames are already taken. This article shares some cool names for beginners looking for a new username.
Minecraft username ideas for beginners
Check out the following Minecraft usernames available right now:
- Green Ghost
If any of these usernames are already taken by some other minecrafter, players can add their unique number or letter to these usernames to make them available. Readers looking for more in-game username suggestions can visit nickfinder.com to get some new ideas.
Before coming up with new usernames, players should know the limitations to usernames in Minecraft:
- The username cannot be more than 16 letters or less than 3.
- Players cannot use spaces in their usernames
- Players can use A-Z characters, a-z characters, and 0-9 numbers in their usernames.
- _ (underscore) is the only special character allowed.
Another thing beginners should know is that an inappropriate name can lead to a ban on multiplayer servers. While such names are not a problem in a single-player world, they can lead to permanent bans on servers.
