They’d appear over a villager’s head like a name tag, but they’d still despawn like normal. They’d also appear in the trading menu, alongside their occupation. Not only would this help you tell different villagers of the same career apart, but it’d also make them feel more alive. Instead of just “the butcher” or “the librarian”, they’re, say, Jesse and Lukas.
That’s not all, though. Let’s say you want to spawn some villagers in creative mode, but don’t want the random names. If you use a spawn egg, they’ll spawn without the names. If you happen to want the randomly selected names, simply hold a blank name tag in the off hand alongside the normal egg, and they’ll spawn with the names. If you want a specific type of villager, hold a name tag named after the specific profession you want, and only that kind of villager will spawn.
