  • you do know you could make it 10 dollars to change your name everytime. so 1. you make profit out of it and 2. people dont have to stick to names they regret changing it to. would make this alot easier for everyone imo. people may get upset about this but its better then having a 1 name change basically your whole destiny career. and to top it off people who didnt use the 1 free name change will still have it then have to pay $10! hope the bungie team looks at this and considers this <3

        • Hello there, I understand there is a one-time name change rule, but will there be opportunities in the future to change names again? I’d really like to change mine.

                  • I am still getting "new display name" (15) error when trying to change my name (on both the app and computer portal). Is there any update? It would nice if people could actually refer to me as something specific instead of "guardian". Makes playing easier also!

                  • The frustrating thing about the error 17 thing is that my name IN GAME on the Xbox is showing as guardian0552 or something like that. The other frustrating thing is that I've tweeted to bungie help and dmg on both of my Twitter accounts and neither received any reply of any kind from anyone.

                  • "Error The field "displayName" has an invalid value in it. Please provide a valid value for the field and try again. (17)" Still not able to change my name, any update on when this issue will be sorted out?

                  • There is a workaround floating on here using dev tools regarding the no name change issue - this is NOT working for me for the error (17) due to a supposed “invalid value” in displayName. Tried messing with multiple attributes. Why do I have to even bother trying this? Bungie, please acknowledge this error. Driving ourselves crazy trying to self service our own name change issues due to lack of communication on your part. Thank you.

                    • Received an app update that the companion will support the name change. I get an error when trying to save: Bungie Name Change Failed Your Bungie Name could not be updated. Still error 17 when trying to use Bungie.net, so whatever the issue is, persists on the app with a different error code. Again, this is DIFFERENT from the “no name change available” bug, as I am able to try and change the name field, just errors when trying to save.

                      • Please add a note about the error 17 that is appearing for many users, several posts about it on here. I’m assuming it’s related in some way to the “no name change available” issue, but that is a different error message than we’re receiving. Over 24 hrs now and still unable to name change, just want some acknowledgement that this issue is also under investigation. Thanks!

                        • This thread keeps losing upvotes, while there are still users experiencing the error 17 (screenshots are available in this thread’s comments) and unable to change their name. We’re approaching 72 hours now with no acknowledgement to this particular issue. PLEASE add it to the FAQ - I don’t mind waiting for the issue to be fixed, but some communication around it would be nice. Thank you.

                            • Fix the name change issue, then send out an additional name change for all these people that got screwed on "attempting" to change their name. Lots of people are saying it bugged out mid way of trying to change it so now they are stuck with either half a name or no name at all.
