Do you know somebody who is just the meanest person in town? Well this might be the perfect name for them. With so many different types of animals living on your island, it’s always possible that one has an attitude problem! But don’t worry – with these names they’ll stop being such a grump and will start sticking out like a sore thumb amongst all their friends because there are plenty to choose from! The possibilities range from “I’m not telling” to “Itchy Scratchy.” Is there anything worse than having someone around constantly scratching themselves? No way! Let

The following Animal Crossing Island Names Cliché examples are found on Facebook posts from January 2018 — December 2018.
“Sandy Shores”: What does it have? Beach sand? Sandy beaches with salty water? Trees out of place where there really shouldn’t be trees at all?! Not this.
“Snowy Peaks”: What does it have? Cold, snowy peaks? Snow falling everywhere and all year round?! Not this.
What they say instead: “Sandy Shores” should be renamed to “A Beach Town by the Sea.” The destination’s many beaches are a delight for visitors who want some sand in their lives. It could also be called “Summertime at Sandy Shores,” which is accurate because of its long warm season! And while you’re here, don’t forget to visit local landmarks like Paddlewheel Park or Seaside Pier! As for the second example — well that one is easy enough: rename it to “Goldilocks on an Adventure!” This town may not always have the best weather, but it does always have good food.
“Jungle”: What could you find there? Jungle animals galore, with monkeys swinging from vines and parrots soaring overhead?! Not this.
What they say instead: “Village of Tradition”. This village is home to a small group of people who live their lives on old traditions every day! But don’t worry — even though these villagers may speak differently than most, they’re still happy to welcome visitors in need for some relaxation time (in other words, if you come back soon enough!). The second example should also be easy: just rename it “The Perfect Village.” That’s because this town has everything you want out of a village; friendly residents, a fruit-bearing orchard, and the best weather, but it does always have good food.
“Coyote”: What could you find there? Coyotes of course! They’re everywhere in this village (even more so than in other towns), so be sure to watch your step when exploring around here. These wild animals may look cute at first glance, but don’t make any sudden movements near them — they won’t hesitate to fight back if provoked!
What they say instead: “The Rough & Tumble Village.” This town is full of tough guys that can handle anything; from coyotes attacking their turf with no warning to adventurers going on extended trips across all Animal Crossing Island’s regions. If you want an adventure, this town is perfect for you.
“Koala”: What could the Koalas do? They can’t even move! But don’t worry about them, they have a pretty good life in their tree branches up high. The only time that they come down from their treetop homes are to eat or when someone drops some fruit on the ground below them.. which happens quite often because of all those hungry birds and bugs living in Animal Crossing Island’s forests.
What to say instead: “The Tree-Top Town.” This village lives communally with one another by building cobbled platforms suspended up at least 20 feet off the forest floor so everyone has enough room to live comfortably without too many trees blocking out the sun — and without having to worry about any slithering snakes from the forest below.
“Hare”: The Hares, they’re just a hopping bunch of animals! But not because they like to hop around all day long — it’s more out of necessity than anything else. After all this time living in Animal Crossing Island’s forests, you’ll find that their ears are built for hearing sounds at really great distances so they can avoid predators and be alerted when someone is coming up on them with bad intentions. They also have fast-growing fur and very large feet so if one were ever caught by something bigger or stronger then themselves there would always be a chance to escape..though usually most Hares will simply sprint away as soon as possible before things get too hairy. “Rabbit”: Rabbit is exactly what it sounds like: a small, cuddly creature that generally lives in holes and burrows (sometimes called “warrens”) deep underground. They are always busy nibbling on carrots or other vegetables, but if there’s one thing you should be careful of when dealing with these animals — even the most gentle ones will bite back if they feel threatened! In fact, their teeth grow throughout their entire lifetime so they can never stop eating to keep them sharp for self-defense..and despite this tough exterior appearance, Rabbits make much softer pets than some would think! “Skunk”: Skunks are happy little creatures who spend all day playing around outside at first
