The name used in the official Animal Crossing Twitter (and the Nintendo Direct) is Nintenland. If you can't think of a creative name of your own, why not just follow their lead and use this one?
The number of characters you can used in a name has been increased, now to a total of 10!
Update: Island names in the English version of New Horizons do not include Island/Isle/etc by default. Names such as “Koholint Island” will be too long.
You can also use foreign characters that is provided in the Animal Crossing keyboard.
In the Japanese version of the game, all island names must end with one of three suffixes for the word “island”.
Unfortunately, the English version doesn't include the word ''Island'' or ''Land'', so be sure to plan accordingly!
