Head Namer


Effortlessly edit the owners of player skulls with Head Namer!

Head Namer

Changing the owners of player heads, introduced in Minecraft 1.4, is a breeze with Head Namer. Absolutely unboalted, complete with permissions support, and with a drop 'n go-type functionality, using Head Namer couldn't be easier.


  • Change the owner of any player-head
  • If a head is not in the player's hand, a new one can be spawned.
  • No config, ultra-easy usage, and no setup required
  • Permissions support for both renaming and spawning new heads


  • /headnamer or /hn - Plugin info, help, and version number
  • /headnamer [Name] or /hn [Name] - Rename a player-head(s) in your hand. If you are not holding a head, a new one will be spawned, provided you have the right permissions.


  • headnamer.* - Gives holder access every Head Namer permission
  • headnamer.name - Allows holder to rename a player head(s) in their hand
  • headnamer.spawnnewitem - If a rename is attempted but the holder is not holding a player head, a new one will be spawned with the desired name.

    If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions at all, please don't hesitate to speak your mind. There's not much else I really aim to add to this plugin, but by all means, I'd love to hear whatever anyone has to say about it.

    What @boxtropica: Go pointed out is spot-on. Quite obviously dozens of other plugins provide Head Namer's functionality, but the best thing about Head Namer is that it's dead-simple, and was actually one of the first three head-related plugins to hit BukkitDev when heads were first introduced -- that means Head Namer existed before that essentials feature did.

    Thanks for your support, I'm glad your users are finding Head Namer useful!

    This is ideal for ease of use. (The players like that)

    If you use essentials (most likely you do) then just do /i playerhead 1 player:PLAYERNAME and then bam, no need for an extra plugin you guys are just wasting RAM

    It works perfectly fine for me -- if you tell me what version of CraftBukkit you're running, what version your client is, if you have the correct permissions or not, and if you're holding the right type of head, I could help you figure out what's going on.

    The plugin does not work for me, if i do /hn [Player Name] it will NOT change the name, the plugin thinks that the head is the right one but it is the right one, tell me how to fix it, and i will let my brother try it, i hope you can help with it, thanks a lot!

    Are you sure? It still works for me, even on the newest iteration of CraftBukkit. If /hn works though, I hope it can suffice for your needs for the time being.

    /headnamer doesn't seem to work bu /hn does. Just thought I'd point this out.

    Nice job, I'd actually be interested to see how you did it too.

    I just submitted version 1.1 for approval, and so it should be approved in the next few hours. Sorry for the delay, the hand-issue I had earlier was simply because of a nasty little misplaced-semicolon. Updating it literally took about 5 minutes, whereas it took me about 3 hours to find the that semicolon was the only problem.

    Hope you guys enjoy it, and thanks for sticking with me!

    Edit: There we are, version 1.1 has been approved. If anyone has any suggestions or wants something particular to be added, let me know.

    So sorry you two and everyone who has been unable to rename heads to your heart's content because of my inactivity. I've spent the past 45 minutes changing the plugin over to the new system of item data, and it's nearly finished. I just haven't gotten renaming items in players' hands working just right just yet, and I want it to work before I release version 1.1.

    So sorry again for the delay, I will submit version 1.1 tomorrow.
