Forbidden GT Name?

When I first signed up waaay back when I had a 1st choice for a name but was told it was not allowed...recently I decided that changing from my current GT might be cool and I tried again to be EvilGenius....denied again, tried it with spaces and without and still not allowed. I know EVIL is fine with MS because I've seen it in LOTS of other gamertags...so I'm wondering what the issue is with the word GENIUS...I can submit my Mensa card and test scores to prove it LOL

You can't have the gamertag EvilGenius because there is a gamertag called Evil genius.

Despite the spacing and capitalisation differences, Live sees both as the same thing.
