What's in a name?

I'd like to give a hyperlink to you to start off with.

It may seem random, but it's to illustrate a point.

Once upon a time, I decided to try and sign up to the Telltale forum. But shock horror! An error message popped up! Apparently there was a problem with my choice of name?
Name after name I tried, again and again, only to wind up with the nasty message.
Perhaps someone already has my name, I thought? However, every other choice of name also caused random error messages to pop up. Even putting random numbers after my name failed to work.

Finally, ticked off and convinced the board was broken, I mashed the keyboard to let out some frustration.
But, wouldn't you know, it chose that moment to start working again.

So, I'm left with "t4gh35hg5". I'm not sure what it means. It's not what I wanted; I wanted to use my real name of Chris. (Plus however many numbers it took to make it unique.)

So what should I do? Is it easy enough for some kind person from Telltale to give me a name change?
Or perhaps I should just accept defeat and stick with "t4gh35hg5"?
