Comment your best island names below!
The name of the island 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! If including a word like Island or Land is mandatory, they will probably not count towards the character count, which will allow you to use some of the longer names suggested above.
Update: Island names in the English version of New Horizons do not include Island/Isle, etc by default. This means that 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”. While nothing has been revealed about this in regards to the English version, it is possible that island names will need to end in either “Island”, “Isle”, or “Land”.

I named mine SunFish... I thought it sounded cool and I'm a fan of Warriors by Erin Hunter (Sunfish is the name of one of the characters) a good name I saw was Meowii (Hawaii and Meow for cats)
I named mine Kittenton... Why not? I love cats!
