Well I would assume the reason you had to change it because you are not allowed to mention anything illegal in your gamertag and 'pimp' is an illegal profession.

You'll likely be issued with another Forced Name Change soon as 'pimp' is still present. Be aware that if you keep getting FNCs they it can lead to a ban from LIVE.

You can either ask the Enforcement Team on the board linked to above, get someone you know to file a complaint against your gamertag and wait for them to issue a FNC or spend 800 points to do it that way.

You were given a chance the first time to enter an acceptable GT. If you want to change it now you will need to either spend 800 MSP or wait until you get another FNC, if you do that you could face enforcement action in the form of a temporary account suspension for repeat offense or depending on your account suspension history it could be a permanent ban.

 

You should have asked about this before you changed it the first time or you could have avoided this altogether simply by actually taking the time to read the Code of Conduct you so quickly agreed to.
