Ok so I have just set up my new Xbox One (with linked windows live ID) however, it is not my official email (my mums). Long story short I'm male and whenever I sign into Xbox One it says Hello, Sarah... -_- I would just like to know if there is anyway of changing the name linked to your windows live ID without changing it. Thanks :)

Nope, you're stuck as Sarah

Give them a call and ask them if they can change it.
You want to fly on a magic carpet to see the king of the potato people and plead for your freedom, and your telling me your completely sane?!

Go make your own Windows Live email and account and switch that to the account linked to your gamertag.

I doubt there's a way within the system itself to just change the name.

I am not sure if all the Windows Live ID mail programs are set up the same but I believe they are. If you log onto Hotmail or with your Windows Live ID you just click on the name on the upper right corner "Sarah Something" and scroll down a couple choices and select Account Settings. It might ask for your password again. In the Account Summary click on Edit Display Name or on the left side under Overview select Edit Name. Then just change the name to whatever you want.
