When I make a new name for something i usually try to think of something obscure from my favorite movie or game, not something too obvious but something avid fans of the particular movie or game might recognize.

If you play a lot of COD4, go for an inanimate object. I nearly wet myself the other day when it flashed on screen "You have been killed by A Vending Machine"

You can pay to change your gamertag through xboxlive, but a cheaper way is to get all your friends and people you play with to report your name as being abusive,then MS will ask you to change it.

I generally go for something that represents your personality. Try naming yourself after a specific hobby, nickname etc. I chose Russ as it is my current alias and tend to refer to myself as that name online.

If they allowed this I may think about changing GT to "Inevitable Bottomburp" or "Red Turd" or maybe "Leet Feet"

The simpsons are great, the Ramones are fantastic, and my favorite game of all time is Robotron:2084

Hence HomerRamone2084 was born

Actually, I was just going to have HomerRamone but it wouldnt let me....

Been thinking about changing my name since I got my Xbox in Jan, so some people might be getting requests to report me soon.
I guess MS don't check to see if your name actually is offensive then, otherwise I am going to have to pay however much it is.

Like the original poster, I just need to come up with a decent name now.
