What's in a name? We all know that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but a Clash of Clans village named 'liteitup420#yolo' is just asking to be, well, lit up.

Players have long been clamoring for a way to rename their precious villages in the hit mobile strategy title, and Supercell has finally acquiesced. The company announced earlier that, "We've heard you -- we've heard you loud and clear. All Clashers want a village with the best possible name, and so many of you have written in to ask for a chance to change the name of it.

So, that's why we're currently working on a feature that will let you (yes, you!) change your village's name in-game, in case you're unhappy with your current username and would like a new handle.

The feature will be included in a forthcoming update as soon as everything is ready. Just hang in there a little bit longer."

Very often, at least with our main base, we all went into Clash of Clans without a main support structure or on a lark. Oftentimes, we got hooked and joined a clan and now that clan is a disparate amalgamation of city-states, more United Nations than main Clan. We all have a flag, for sure, but wouldn't it be nice to rename your village to something imposing and unifying? Name everything after the Greek states of old, or your favorite Kurt Russell movies. Anything.

The update bringing the new name change should be happening soon. However, it remains to be seen if, like nearly all of Clash of Clans, changing your name will require money, time or both.
