Skyrim: Can you change your name?

When I was creating my character at the begining of the game I accadentilly kept my name of 'Prisoner' and I want to change it to something other than that, can you?


No you cannot sadly.


don't think so unless pc. Otherwise just restart.


Atheists, man is nothing. That's your "evidence" of God's existence


No, you have to start over, hope your not to far in the game.


On the computer there's a hack that can let you change it. On any other system, no. If you're not too far in, just restart.


U can on the PC. I don't think u can on the consoles without starting a new game.

If u are playing on the PC follow these steps:

During gameplay press "~" (tilde) to engage the command console.

Then type this command: "showracemenu"

Press "enter" and "~" again to exit the command console.

Now click "done" and enter the new name of your player character.


If your playing on a computer you can you counsel commands to change the characters name among a wide variety of game parts. However is your playing on a game counsel (Xbox 360 or PS3) you cannot. In order to get a different name, you must create a new character.


On Pc or Mac just press ~ to open the console and say showracemenu and it will pop up and the thing at the beginning of the game will pop up and your progress will still be saved.
