I got a Random Name and had no possibility to select another one

Hey,

i registered to "Games for Windows - Live" and entered all required Informations. So, i veryfied my Account per E-Mail and logged in. I don't know why, but my name was: LamaHyperon92. Just thinking: wtf?! Friend of mine had this problem 2 weeks earlier too. And now I have to waste my free name change just to get my normal name. Where is the sence behind this????? I don't get it.

Looking forward to an answer

That is the only reason why you get a free name change

On xboxes you choose your name unless you create it on the website which would give you a random name that's why you are given 1 free name change

Xbox accounts who choose their name do not get that option

Plus you are only given 30 days

That's the reason they give you a free name change. If you make it on xbox.com, they give you a random name as it speeds up the whole process and then you can change it to something that you want.
