What is the datapack about?
This datapack gives names to the villages in your world, and allows you to create place names for your own creations that appear on your screen. When you enter an area (which is say a village, or a building you have marked with your name and address), you will see its name appear on your screen.

How can you add custom names to your own buildings?
To create your own title, you first need a specific name tag, which you can get from different chests. Once you have that, get an item frame, then rename an item to whatever name you want the title to be. After that, put the item in the item frame, then drop the special name tag on it. And you're done.If you want to change the title, just replace the item in the item frame.

Set mode (doesn't contain the place namer feature):
If you want an alternative of this datapack which is less chaotic, you should download the set names version. It gives less variety to ames, but they make more sense:

Download set names

Name amount (for set version):

There are 50 different names for every village type.


I din't tested it in multiplayer, but i don't see how would this not work in multy..

Known bug
If two address markers (item frame or whatever is in the village) are too close to each other, only one of them is displayed. So try to hide yours so that it is well away from one of the already established title. This bug might be fixed in the future.

If you have found any bugs, please dropp a comment.

Sorry for the bad english

I would like the name to pop up on the screen if the player is below or above the distance target selector. Example: if the item frame is at y=100 I want the name to pop up at y=150+ I am trying to change some of the commands but they don't seem to be working exactly right

How do you get the nametags? Is there a way to give them to yourself with commands or do you have to go out and find them?

Instead of having a fixed list of names, you could make names with multiple parts which are each selected randomly.
For each name, randomly pick between 1 of 3 formats:
<adjective> <noun> or <noun> <suffix> or <adjective> <suffix>
Then, roll randomly for each element to see which list to pick from. 2/3 of the time, pick from the large list of generic names. 1/3 of the time, pick from the smaller list of biome-specific names. Then pick a random element from the selected list and build the completed name.

Sample options
Generic nouns
generic adjective
generic suffixes

Given just this table, you have 75 completed names. Of course, it would be quite easy to expand this until you have thousands of possibilities.

Hmm interesting idea! Maybe I will try to implement it.... But I have never tried to combine two strings in minecraft.

You can't actually combine 2 strings directly, since JSON text components are not compatible with NBT manipulation for some reason. However, you can save the 2 strings separately and always print them in order.
