Tav is the default name that Baldur’s Gate 3 assigns to custom characters until the player changes it.

Luckily, after all the recent updates there is a way players can change their character names with a Magic Mirror.

There is a growing concept in the gaming industry about a generic character name and Tav comes as no surprise after we have seen V in Cyberpunk 2077.

There are multiple settings that players have to look at while customizing the character and it is easy to forget changing Tav. Since you can change it if you want later, there’s nothing for you to worry about.
