Why did I have a weird wrong xbox 360 gamertag?

I logged into xbox with my windows live id.  I had never done this before.  When I logged in it had a very strange gamertag name for me.  I never had created it.  It was just there.  Is that because xbox creates a random name for my first joining?

Please check on your XBOX 360 for your current XBOX 360 Gamertag by going to My XBOX > Select your Gamertag Avatar > Account Management - you should see Windows Live ID listed there. You have to login using that e-mail and password to the XBOX.com website. If you want to change it to a different e-mail address then please follow these instructions to do so: support.xbox.com/.../manage-live-id

You probably created a new gamertag instead of signing on with your existing one.

The gamertag creating is faster now as it gives you a random gamertag. You are able to change it for free within 30 days of creating the account.
