It is not possible to change your name in Club Penguin without downloading a cheat software--alternatively, you can create a new account and give a different name to a completely new penguin. With cheat software, however, it takes less than five minutes to permanently alter the name of your penguin at any point in the game.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Close out of all active programs on your computer.

  2. 2

    Download the cheat software (see Resources section).

  3. 3

    Log in to your Club Penguin account and begin playing the game.

  4. 4

    Click on your penguin to open his profile box on the game screen.

  5. 5

    In a separate window, open the cheat software you installed.

  6. 6

    Click the "Process List" button in the cheat software, next to the Open icon in the top left of the window.

  7. 7

    Scroll down the list of programs until you find a program referencing either Internet Explorer or Club Penguin. Select this program and click the "OK" button to return to the Process List table.

  8. 8

    Locate the drop-down box labeled Value Type. Select the "Text" option.

  9. 9

    Type in the current name of your penguin in the Text queue (two rows above the Value Type option), then click the button that says "First Scan."

  10. 10

    Notice that two fields have popped up in the left side of the Process List window (underneath the Address and Value column headers). Double-click both of the items in this list, one at a time. This should make them reappear at the bottom of the Process List window.

  11. 11

    Double-click the first item to reappear so that a new window pops up. Replace the current name of your penguin with your preferred new name. Click "OK," then click "Yes" to both prompts that appear.

  12. 12

    Repeat Step 11 with the second item that reappeared in the bottom of the Process List window.

  13. 13

    Type in your preferred new name for your penguin in the Text queue (two rows above the Value Type option).

  14. 14

    Minimize the cheat software window and return your screen to Club Penguin. Exit out of your penguin's profile box.

  15. 15

    Walk your penguin into another room. Open his profile box again to ensure that the name has been successfully changed before exiting out of the cheat software.
