This is an updated version of my original Villager Name Replacer mod. This mod will change the names of NPCs in both the vanilla parts of the game as well as any content added in SVE.

Currently works with SVE v.1.13.8

***Huge changes now available! Name change functionality has been moved to a complete separate config file inside the mod folder to make name changing a whole lot easier***

Installation:
Download and install Pathoschild's Content Patcher if you don't have it already
Download the Villager Name Replacer (SVE Compatible)
Unpack the contents of the archive to your .../StardewValley/Mods folder using a program such as WinRAR
Open .../StardewValley/Mods/Villager Name Replacer (SVE Compatible)/config.json with a text editor (such as Notepad)
To change a name, using Penny as an example, edit "PennyName": "Penny" to look more like "PennyName": "Ginger"  
Save the changes you’ve made to apply them 
Launch the game and enjoy!

Current Issues
There will be an issue with apostrophes in the case of possession. Since all I did was made the names changeable, apostrophes will still be set for original villager name spelling. 
Example: If a line of dialogue were to say something such as "Lewis' purple shorts" and you changed his name to Billy, the new line of dialogue would be "Billy' purple shorts." 
Recommended fix for this: Use a program such as Word and use the find and replace all function. If you were changing the name of Mayor Lewis, find all instances of {{LewisName}}' (having the apostrophe in there is crucial for this fix) and replace it with {{LewisName}}'s. Don't add in your custom name this way or it'll break the mod. Save the content.json after you're done and you should be good to go. You only need to do this if you plan on changing a name from the original that either adds an "s" or takes away the "s" at the end of the name.

If you have any suggestions on any other mod you would like to see the name changer compatible with, please let me know! I will be trying to continue to update this one as SVE updates and work on much more compatibility for a wide range of mods...This is only the beginning!
