Profile name unacceptable?

I am trying to find an answer to this and 2 emails to XBox Live support have gotten me no answers. And actually more headaches since it looks like the emails are bot responded since they only answer the first line of my question.

I am trying to update my profile name (NOT my Gamertag!!) to Dani.

The message I get is that my name contains a word of phrase that isn't allowed. Any information as to why it is like this?

I also tried changing my Halo:Reach service tag to DANI but got the same message.

Oddly I can change it to any other variation of the name Daniel & it's feminine forms.  (I'm transgender, that's why)

Variations that work: Dan, Daniel, Danny, Daniela, Danni, Danielle, Dany

Why can't I have it the way I want?!

Just a guess but I would bet it has to do with the "slang" that word has in other Country's

I said it was just a guess :D, thats what I was told with a word that I was not able to enter and it was what I thought a pretty common word. I figured its close to the same reason for this.

[quote user="Daniela76MN"]I also tried changing my Halo:Reach service tag to DANI but got the same message.[/quote]I haven't got an answer for you, but I have seen a couple of other people who have had the same problem.  There are similarities in your cases.  Each of you tried to change your name of profile info on both your profile and in Halo:Reach (in particular).  I suspect the issue is within Halo: Reach, but I don't know what it is.
