139 Best Minecraft Tool Names (Curated & Ranked) + Generator

Young boy playing Minecraft on a PC

Minecraft has grown from a small game created in six days[1] to one of the most popular games worldwide, with over 100 million active players.[2]

Tools allow Minecraft players to gather materials more efficiently and complete tasks like fishing, farming, mining, and crafting within the game.[3]

Throughout the game, you can obtain tools by crafting — mixing certain “ingredients” (like steel, planks, and iron ingots) to create new tools.[4]

You aren’t required to name your tools in Minecraft, but creating cool names can add more fun to the game and make your experience more unique.

We list ready-to-use tool name ideas below (broken down by tool type). Scroll past the list to find our name generator, or use our tips for choosing the best tool names!

Minecraft Tool Name Generator

How to Choose the Best Minecraft Tool Names

Keep the following tips in mind when choosing names for your Minecraft tools:

  • Choose a theme. Sticking with one theme for all of your tools can make it easier to choose names. For example, you might select silly, literal names for all of your tools — “Pointy Stick” for a sword, “Groundbreaker” for a shovel, etc.
  • Tap into your sense of humor. Choosing light-hearted names that make you laugh can make Minecraft even more fun. Depending on what you find funny, you can choose a name that’s quirky, sarcastic, ironic, or punny.
  • Think of the tool’s features. Minecraft has various tools and upgrades, each of which serves a different purpose within the game. The tool’s use and features can give you a starting point for the perfect name. For example, different pickaxes can mine materials at different speeds, so you might want a name that reflects the speed if you have an ultra-fast pickaxe.
