When I turn on my Xbox One and it recognizes me, it calls me by a stupid nickname that a friend put on my account and I can't figure out how to change it back. Can someone help me on this? Where can I change this? It's not my gamertag. It's the name that it calls you when it recognizes you, like "Hello John".

Thanks

I've been wondering the same thing. My gamertag is KIDD VIDD, but my Xbox One calls me KIDD, which isn't bad, especially since some real life friends call me that, but I'd prefer if my Xbox One called me by my real name.

I want to know if the name it calls you has to pass a filter. I want to put a dirty word for my wife's name because we think its funny that the XBOne always says hi to her when she walks in while i'm playing a game and it will be doubly funny if it calls her a dirty name.

It should work.

You went to https://account.live.com went under Overview, selected Edit Name and edited the First Name field? That is what the Xbox will call you.
