    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

    Gamertag is unique but still has an ID number after

    i contacted support and they wouldn't give me an answer as to why my profile wasn't coming up when searching and that the system automatically put the numbers after without warning that it would. which is BS and now i have to spend money to change it again.

    The number is for people who have the same name or a similar name. You can try contacting microsofts support team who can try and change your name back
