Name tags in Minecraft 1.19 are items that can be used to name any monster. As players progress through the game, they fight many hostile monsters and befriend several who help them with their tasks. Therefore, they will want to name these monsters to personalize their world and keep them from disappearing as well.
Unfortunately, these objects are quite rare in the world. They cannot be crafted by the player and can only be obtained through external means. There are several structures and mobs that can provide this item to players; therefore, they must explore the world as much as possible to find one.
A Guide to Finding and Using Name Tags in Minecraft 1.19 Update
Where to find them
Nametags are mainly found in loot boxes found in certain structures, but they can also be obtained from a Librarian villager and by fishing.
Loot boxes in structures
The most common way to find one of these rare items is to explore various naturally generated structures and loot the chests there. Nametags are generated in four locations: Dungeons, Mineshafts, Ancient Towns, and Woodland Mansions.
They are most commonly found in Mine Shafts where they have a 42.3% chance to spawn, followed by Woodland Manor at 28.3%, Dungeon at 27.9%, and Ancient City at 16, 1%. The best way to find them is to loot chests in mine shafts.
Trade with a Librarian Villager
Librarian villagers are known for their excellent and useful crafts. Players typically use them to trade enchanted books and other items. If a librarian villager is at master level, they will exchange the item for 20 emeralds.
The only downside is that bringing a librarian to master’s level is tedious and a name tag is quite expensive.
The third and final method of obtaining the rare item is fishing. It’s a fun activity through which players can capture some of the most valuable loot items from a body of water.
There is a 1/6th chance of getting the item after a 5% chance of something being treasure. Even though players can increase their chances with the Luck of the Sea enchantment, it’s not the best way to get name tags.
How to use name tags
Once players have obtained rare name tags, they can only be used through an anvil. They are expensive tools to craft as they require three iron blocks and some iron ingots to craft.
Players can place name tags in the anvil and change their names by giving XP levels. Once the name tag has a custom name, it can be placed on any mob except Ender Dragon.
