I need a Gamertag change

Well, a while back I made this account to just goof off on so I was careless about the name and I just typed it in really fast not caring and it was a xbox live silver account. But now I redeemed a 12 month card on this acc thinking I would get a gamertag change. Anything that can help me out? this gamertag is rediculous

You can change your Gamertag through the console, although it will charge you a fee for doing so.

Every account is allowed one free change - but only if you did not pick the original name, which you did.

The only other way for it to be changed is if it violates the Code of Conduct - but here your account will permanently have an Enforcement action against it and the new name is randomly-assigned.

the only way to change your gamertag is to change it for free if its the first time you are changing your gamertag or to buy a gamertag change for 800 Microsoft points which is $10
