A once-in-a-lifetime choice

An important part of the Dragon’s Dogma 2 experience is making and naming your pawn. From characters from different games to real-life figures, you can give them any appearance you could imagine and change it later, but what about their names?

How to Change Your Main Pawn’s Name in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Unfortunately, there’s no way to change your pawn’s name. Even though you can change some of its appearance’s aspects through in-game shops or make it completely anew with an Art of Metamorphosis book, its name will remain the same for the rest of your playthrough as it cannot be changed. The same goes for its Moniker, which is also a lifetime choice.

The only true way to have a differently named main Pawn would be by starting a whole new save file (and thus erasing all of your current progress) or by starting a New Game +. It takes a lot of effort either way, so if you want to change that silly name you initially gave to your Pawn, you’re completely out of luck.

Small touches of your appearance can be altered in big cities by visiting certain NPCs, and the rare Art of Metamorphosis books can make a complete makeover (changing elements such as height, musculature, and more), but none can change your name. It’s not like it’s that important, but it can be quite annoying if it has a typo or something. If you drastically change its appearance, the name will remain the same too, and that’s a huge letdown.

So unless Capcom addresses this in the future, you’ll have to do with the pawn’s original name for now. It’s not the end of the world as the name won’t be vocally said at any point, at the very least, so you won’t be hearing some strange things coming out of a random NPC mouth.

If you can’t stand your pawns name, you could always learn how to start a new save file in Dragon’s Dogma 2.
