Names on Poptropica are generated automatically from a list of pre-approved adjectives and nouns.

This is done to protect users' identities and to provide internet security on a site which is used by thousands of children around the world.

However, there are a number of rumors on the internet about 'secret ways' to change usernames on Poptropica.

Changing your name on 'Poptropica'  

The website is very vague about how to edit a username once you're in game play. In the FAQ section of the site, the question: 'how can I change my username/password?' is answered only with instructions on how to change your password.

This might be an oversight on the part of the creators of the website, but I think it's more likely that we're simply not meant to change our user names once we've created a character.

The secret way to change your name on 'Poptropica'

I tried out the game and was assigned the name 'bendy chicken'. As you can imagine, I was pretty frustrated about being assigned that username - especially since my character looked more like an ant than a chicken!

However, at no point was I given an option to change my name if I wasn't happy with it.

Having scoured the internet for ways to change my character's name, I found plenty of sites that showed me how to change my password, my character's clothes, and how to grow a beard.

None of the websites and blog posts mentioned ANYTHING about changing username - so this leads me to believe that the real secret to changing your name in Poptropica is that THERE IS NO SECRET!!! You can't.

There are only 2 ways I know. Cloning your account using the avatar studio and hacking the servers at and changing your player.dat file.

It is real. There's this site where people go and change their name like mine. But, right now, the site is under construction.

It is a rare cheat. I don't know it.

Some Poptropica players have their names in it. Some of them also have their username!
There is a way but I don't know it.
