    In my opinion it should display if the name is taken (and if so, what it will be changed to) on this page. Otherwise, you can hit next and it will tell you, but that's the confirmation page. It's very easy to type the wrong username (or just any username to see if it's taken) and accidentally confirm it since the confirmation page is the page that tells you what your username will be.

    Change FortNite Name

    Hey dubstir --

    Using a web browser, go to https://www.epicgames.com and sign into your account. You'll have the option to choose the platform your account is on when logging in. Choose the Xbox icon to sign into your account using your Xbox Gamertag and credentials. Once
    logged in, you should see your Epic Name displayed in the top right-hand corner of the web page, click on your name and go to "Account". Before you can change your Epic Name (Fortnite Display Name) you'll need to ensure you've verified your account via email.

    You will see your "Display Name" in the first field. If you are eligible for a name change, you can do it there. You can only change your Epic Name every 2 weeks, so ensure you really want the name that you've chosen and that it doesn't violate Epic Games or
    Xbox Codes of Conduct of course.

    Did you change your Xbox Gamertag or change your Activision Display Name? Either way it will keep your progress. It might take a day or two to fully synchronize the new name.

    how do I change

    Njal the Blue already correctly explained how you can change your Gamertag name and Avatar on the Xbox One console.

    On a Windows 10 PC you can do the same by downloading the free Avatar App. Simply open the Windows 10 Start menu, and type "Xbox Avatar", and the search results should show the app directly, or a link that opens the App Store to get the free App.

    This page here explains how to change your Gamertag name on various devices and through your Web browser.

    If you actually want to change your "Real Life" name that is displayed when you share your actual name on Xbox, you can change your name on
    https://account.microsoft.com and changing your personal profile information.

    Seeing as you are not trying to change the Gamertag's this may be the simplest solution:

    Log into the email account your gamertag uses via you Microsoft account, edit display name.

    How to change the name that is displayed:

    https://account.live.com/ > Login > Left side of screen > Select Overview > Edit Display Name > Enter what you want displayed in the first name field only. You will have to put something in the last name
    field but it will not show on the XB1 dashboard.

    Log out of you XB1 then back in. If it does not change give it a few minutes. It will eventually update.

    No. Gamertag change does nothing except change the display name of your gamertag. That's it.
