Village Names Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 patches up a shortcoming that nobody else has addressed.

Village Names Mod

Getting Started:

Whenever a village is generated, it also generates a sign nearby the well: An option in the configs changes the well’s rim to slabs so that villagers and players won’t get stuck inside.

Village Names Mod 1

Anyway, that sign shows a randomly generated name for the village:

Village Names Mod 2

Whenever you interact with a villager (i.e., open the trading GUI), the villager will reveal its name to you:

Village Names Mod 3
Village Names Mod 4

The village’s sign can be broken, or may accidentally not generate; or you may install this mod after a village has generated, but this mod has no retrogen. In any of these cases you might think that affected villages won’t have names. But don’t worry:

Village Names Mod 6

If you right-click a book onto a villager, it will record the village’s name and location into it!

Village Names Mod 7
Village Names Mod 8

This of course will also work even if the village has a sign by the well. Anyway, according to this Village Book, there is a fourth villager that we haven’t discovered.
