    Hey there fChrls,

    There was recently an update with updating your Gamertag where the system will add a suffix to your name if the one you have chosen has already been taken to differentiate users while online.

    "New Xbox players or players who want to change are allowed to register a gamertag of their choice, up to 12 characters. If it’s already taken by someone else, we will assign a suffix with numbers to differentiate
    you from other people with the same name. We will also auto-format the gamertag to show the suffix subtly in a different font so focus will be on the name you chose but the suffix will always be shown. If you want to change your gamertag using these updates,
    your first change is free, but every subsequent change will cost the same amount we currently charge for a gamertag change ($9.99 in the U.S.)."


    You can find more information by checking out the
    Gamertag Update FAQ
    .

    I hope this helps.

    gamertag

    That would not be an system assigned name

    That would probably be as generaated name based on your choices

    Which does not qualify for a name change

    Randomly generated names would be two nice names and a number

    Your name looks More like. Name generated by your previous choices

    That would make your account way before the randomly generated name system

    And the free name change only applies 30days after the creation of the account

    Change my gamertag

    I would like to change my gamertag because I couldn't choose it when I first signed up and then I changd with my free gamertag
    Becsuee the free gamertag change doesnt apply to you

    Your name is a cusromized name

    Not a randomly generated name

    Just because its a suggestion not your first pick doesnt mean you didnt choose it

    An system generated name is an emotion plus a fluffy animal and an series of numbers

    So happybunny1234 would be a system generated name

    actually you did Change your Name, every System created Name consist out of 2 words + a random number.
