Adding my name to my account

Ive tried a few times to add my name to my xbox live account, and it continuously returns an error about offensive language.

I was wondering if there would be any way to add my first name "Cody" as the name on my account profile, or if I would just have to use a nickname. I do believe that my first name could be verified through billing info/history.

I've heard of this happening with a few specific names.  Cody being one of them.  I can only assume that in some other culture or language, "cody" is a word associated with some negative connotation.  I don't know of any other workaround to this than to simply use a nickname.

Did this solve your problem?
