How to Change Name in Final Fantasy XIV

To change your name in FFXIV, purchase a name change from the store. You can change your name as many times as you want, but you must pay a separate fee each time.

Go To MogStation

The MogStation or FFXIV Store is where you get a character name change. Make sure that you select the proper account when logging in.

Character Renaming Service

On the home screen of the FFXIV store, there’s a section called Games and Additional Services, which is near the bottom of the options.

Under that section is an option called Character Renaming Service. It usually has a picture of a Moogle.

Change Name in FFXIV

Once here, you can apply to change your character name. There are on-screen instructions to walk you through the process.

There should be a field to fill out to confirm the name you want to change your character to. Fill this out and check it three times to ensure accuracy.

It is not a free service, so note the cost on the screen, as it may change, though it’s usually around $10. Once you confirm the cost, you will get an email to let you know the change went through.

Log in to make sure it worked. If it didn’t, there may be a delay, so wait a few hours before contacting customer service.

If you want to change your name again, you have to pay the fee again, so choose your name wisely.

Is There a Free Name Change?

No. There is no way to change your character’s name for free in FFXIV. Some MMOs allow one free change, but not FFXIV.

If you’ve only had a character for a few days, then make a new one and use a different name.

But for long-term characters, it’s best to just pay for the change if you know you want to commit to one new name.

Character Name Vs. Account Name

Your account name is different than your character name in FFXIV. However, you still cannot change it.

Your FFXIV account name is the same as your Square Enix account name, and it’s important to the company that all users are verified, which is something they only allow you to do twice on special occasions.

If you feel that yours qualifies, feel free to fill out this form to submit your request.

Now you know how to change your name in Final Fantasy XIV.

What’s your reason for the name change? Let me know in the comments!
