Fortnite Name Criteria and Username Versus Display Name

Epic Games does put some restrictions on usernames for Fortnite:

  • You cannot use the word Epic in your username.
  • The name can only contain letters, numbers, and spaces, no punctuation.
  • It cannot be obscene.
  • It must be a minimum of 5 characters and a maximum of 32 characters.
  • Case – upper or lower – does not matter.
  • Almost all font styles are supported.

The Fortnite username and display name can be different. The username is an account identifier and indicates the direct URL which can be used to visit your profile. You would use your username to get account status and information.

Your username appears on screen when you are actively playing the game. As stated above, you can change your username once every six months.

Your Fortnite Display Name

Your display name is visible to other Fortnite members when you make comments or questions in the members forum. It can be different from your username which you use to log in to your Epic Games account.

When you first create your account, the username and the display name will be the same. A member must get permission from the site administrator to change his/her display name.

We hope you will enjoy playing Fortnite for many years to come and we hope the information we’ve provided here will help you have a little more fun as you establish your persona on Fortnite. From the “Expert Marksman,” here’s saying PLAY ON!

Popularity of the Game

While the game is free to play and as many as 40 million people log on to enjoy the battle every month, just last May players made in-game purchases that totaled $318 million…in a single month! Fortnite is big business.

But even with all the shooting and killing, the fun in Fortnite is building and customizing. Outfitting your character with the latest “skin” and weapons or creating a unique and fitting name for your character or performing a memorable victory dance. And, like many competitive endeavors, your player name is important.

We hope we’ve helped you on that front. And, remember, the last one standing wins!
