My name is blocked?

Hi, I'm having a problem uploading stuff to my fileshare on Halo reach. Every time I try to, I get a message saying

"the name of the creator of this file is not allowed on Xbox live"

Why? What's wrong with my name? I didn't think the gamertag Mr Melo Yellow was offensive. I mean its based on a fairly innocent song by Donovan except misspelled and adding Mr to the front.

I've already tried asking for help on the xbox forums but they said i need to contact 343 for help on this issue. After doing some research and getting some helpful advice from guys at 343's forum, I discovered that this isn't an issue with 343 but an issue with the bad word filter xbox live uses. From what I found, it seems that my gamertag was fine when I made it, but updates caused it to be a filtered gamertag. But because it was an old tag, I didn't have to change it. I would only get an issue with games that use the xbox live word filter e.g. Halo reach. 

I've heard that this is a common issue people have been having.

Here's an example: http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/12/t/83986.aspx?PageIndex=1 

Could somebody help me on this? Its really annoying not being able to use my fileshare and I don't want to have to spend 800 ms points to change my name because of this.

If your name was not rated E - you would have a forced name change, and they are free.

But I am betting Melo is a 'Bad name' for some reason.

Support staff are going to have to put in a request to see why it is happening and then have it changed.

They should be around soon.

I'm bumping this thread in an attempt to follow up with support. As much as I hate to do this kind of thing, it appears that it has been 6 days since Miss Portia made contact, but with still no resolution. Since I was the one that advised him to contact you guys though Halo Waypoint's forum, I am curious whether or not you are able to help this guy out.

Are you able to do everything else on Halo ? Have you tried naming your file anything different since?

I can do pretty much everything else. Also, I've tried many files that I could upload to my fileshare before this happened to no success. Thanks for the help Unerealch1ef. Hopefully this issue can be solved.
