A large group of Stardew Valley characters

There’s a huge roster of Stardew Valley characters, including some you can even marry if you treat them right. You will find each villager in a different spot around Pelican Town every day. A few will provide you with quests to complete, and others will give you nice gifts when you become close friends. With help from our list of all the characters, you will find out exactly who you can marry, who you can give a lovely gift to, and who is just along for the ride. Most of the Stardew Valley villagers will accept two gifts from you each week, and they each have unique likes and dislikes you should take note of.

Stardew Valley Rename Character

Unfortunately, there isn’t currently a way to rename your Stardew Valley player character – well, not legitimately anyway. If you’re playing on the PC version, you can go into the file and rename it manually, but on Switch and mobile, it’s not quite so simple. Realistically, you’ll need to make a new character if you want a different name, but a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right?

And there you have it, that’s every Stardew Valley character you may encounter around Pelican Town! If you’re itching to show off your Stardew love, check out our picks for some Stardew Valley merch.
