No screen with a choice to change Member Name was offered to me, after I answered question about already being a Giff Gaff member. I do have several accounts.
The auto-generation caught me out, locking me in before I was offered a chance to select my own Member name.
So, yes, a new facility for existing members to change name would be useful, especially as name linked to phone make, will want to change when moving to replacement phone.

I activated my sim today. I was assigned a member name that I do not want. I was never given an opportunity to change the name. I received an email saying that I can change my member name when I log in, but I do not see a place to change the member name in my profile.

Hi @martha4evr you get the opportunity to change your username only on your second login to the site so try logging out and then back in again if you haven't already.

I totally agree with you. I think over time people change what they want their username to be. We should all be granted at least one username change per account. It feels like a similar experience to the first email address I had, it was cool when I was 12... but in my mid 20s being “steviecoolkid” wasn’t going to work on my CV. GG should really double down on a name change option for everyone and not just the auto assigned ones. 

Kudos costs me nothing, so I give it freely .

I think that is a wonderful idea.

Makes Giffgaff more user-friendly and customer focused.
