I've had this issue when trying to change certain things on my profile and have given up and tried again later at which point it's worked straight away, don't know why but it did, also may be worth trying to change it on the Xbox website if you've been trying on console, or on your console if you've been trying to change it online.

To edit profile online try this link (you'll need to sign in)...live.xbox.com/.../GamerProfile

Also just to clarify, you are trying to set your name to steve aren't you, not your gamertag? Your gamertag has to be unique, so steve will already be taken, if this is the case, try putting some numbers after it or using 5 as S, 3 as E etc.
