1. Open a Chest in a Dungeon

A first chance that Minecraft offers you to find a Name Tag are the chests found in dungeons. You can only find a dangeon underground. They are made from a small room with a monster generator in the center some chests full of precious items. The characteristic that is typical of the dungeon are the walls and the floor made of pebbles and mossy pebbles. In the spectator game mode it is easy to find them because you can fly underground.

All you have to do is is to have luck! That’s right! In fact, you will find the name tag you were looking for inside the chest! When you find it, just collect it and keep it in your inventory so you can use it when you need it.

2. Open a chest in the Nether Fortress

Another option you have to get a Name Tag is to go to the Nether and look for a fortress. If you’ve never been to the Nether you must first build or find a Nether Entry Portal that will teleport you into it! Cool! It’s easy. Just create a 4×5 obsidian frame and set the inside on fire with a flintlock!

The fortresses of the Nether are like castles inside which there are various chests. If you are lucky in one of these chests you will find the name tag you are looking for, along with many other useful things.
