Changing my GT

Hey I was just wondering if anyone could help me out with this:

My clan decided we wanted to change the way our clan name is written so I decided on a new name and went to go change it.

I entered in the GT I wanted to use, but it said it was not available.

The thing is, right after it said it wasnt available I went to go and add it.

When I sent the GT a friend request, it said "This is not a valid Xbox Live account. Please try again".

So I was wondering, can Xbox make the name I wish to change to available?

Please get back to me ASAP.

Thanks.

P.S. - The name I wanted was "Apollo DC"

I can't change my Gamertag (GT).
Just because you can't friend request a GT doesn't mean it is available. First of all, all GT are tied to services like Zune or Games for Windows LIVE. If a GT doesn't exist on Xbox, it might be in use on one of those services. Also, spaces and capitalization are not considered when looking for available GTs. For example, "Major Nelson" is the same as "MajorNelson" is the same as "MaJoR nElSoN". Basically if the service says the GT isn't available, it isn't available.
