Xbox Live Gamertag.

Currently, I am coming back to Xbox. Unfortunately I do not have enough to buy a Xbox Live Gold Card and points to change my gamertag. The reason for me wanting to change my gamertag is because it has a sexual word in it. At the time I didn't know what the word meant but now that I do I don't think it's appropriate to have as a Xbox Live Gamertag.. My current gamertag is "KSI Climax UD" and I don't want that but i don't have enough money to change it to have Climax out of my name. Is there any way you could help me.

You can not request a name change. You can get someone to file a complaint on your gamertag and the XBLPET will determine if a name change is warranted. Be advised though while Climax can be used in a sexual manner the enforcement team may nit see it that way as it also has other meanings

I don't want to be banned for it that's why I want to ask for it to be changed in advance, I'd buy one myself but I can't afford both at the same time.

You would only be banned if you have had multiple forced name changes. But again you cannot request a name change.

You wouldn't be banned if your Gamertag was deemed offensive.

(Only with multiple, egregious offences would this happen.)

If they find it offensive, they'll force a name-change onto the account, to something you do not get to choose.

The only way to choose a new Gamertag yourself is to pay the change fee.

Also, even if the Xbox Live Police Enforcement Team does issue you a new Gamertag, you no longer get to choose what it is.  If they issue a Forced Gamertag Change, the system will randomly generate a new one for you, and you'll still have to pay $9.99 to customize it.  There's simply no longer a free ride for customized Gamertags except at the very beginning of your account life cycle.

What @Klokkwork said above is important. Your best bet is to save up the $10 to change your gamertag. As for the idea of it being deemed "offensive": the word climax by itself means "a culmination or apex". It doesn't have to be considered "sexual". Don't worry about being banned, as long as you haven't had offensive gamertags in the past, you'll be fine.
