What are Roblox names?

Roblox names are your in-game username, visible by yourself and other players when you play online. You pick your name when you create an account. They can’t have any spaces or special characters – for example, ‘my name’ has to be ‘myname’. Your name also needs to be unique, and can’t be the same as one that already exists.

However, you can also have a separate display name. Unlike usernames, display names are non-unique names that you can display to other players. If you don’t choose one, Roblox automatically sets it as the same as your username.

Can I change Roblox names?

Yes, you can change your Roblox username for 1,000 Robux.

  • Got to account settings
  • Click on account info

Are there any restrictions on Roblox names?

Yes, like many online games, there are many restrictions on Roblox names. While there is not a confirmed list, you may not include any words possibly viewed as swear words, slurs, or otherwise offensive terms in your name. Sorry, Cassandra.

Is there a Roblox names generator?

Yes, if you’re struggling to come up with your own Roblox name, you can use a Roblox username generator. We recommend the Roblox Den username generator, as it also checks to see if names are already available.
