Time to name all these wolves after Pokemon.
Welcome to another guide as we help you figure out some of the more vague items in Minecraft. There is an item that will let you name creatures like you would a pet. Here’s how to get Name Tags in Minecraft.
If you’re trying to find these naturally, we are sorry to say that Name Tags cannot be crafted from a recipe or found in the wild without some RNG. Thankfully, there are a few different ways you can get your hands on them.
Name Tags are among the treasure loot pool that can be found through fishing. While this definitely a fight against the RNG, it’s something you can just keep doing as long as you have a rod. Finding treasure through fishing is about a 5% chance per cast.
This one is probably the most lucrative in general if you are the explorer type, but Name Tags have a chance to come out of looted chests. These statistics are off of the wiki and tell the chances to find a Name Tag depending on the location the chest was found:
- Dungeon – 28.3%
- Mineshaft – 42.3%
- Ancient City – 16.1%
- Buried Treasure – 34.3%
- Woodland Mansion – 29.7%
Buying From Villagers
This is probably the worst chance of all, considering the large pool of possible items that villagers could sell you. However, it’s still a way to get a Name Tag.
That should cover everything you need to know about how to get Name Tags in Minecraft. With them, you could even name a Polar Bear.
