This would be a good chance to let everyone know your future name though, so that people will know who you are.I hope that if names are one-time changes that Bungie sticks an indicator on maybe for a month next to a username (eg. Hovering the cursor over the name bring up (previously known as ____). Or a section of the profile to see a user's previous names.
Another big community I was in allowed bi-annual name changes, I disappeared from it for about a year and a half. I felt like I didn't know anyone there since so many had changed their names.That would be great, but I have no idea how difficult it would be to make it work. Maybe the web team doesn't see it worth all the trouble.
Shouldn't be too difficult though, especially if every user can edit the "previously known as_______" part themselves. That way they don't have to add any complicated linking to the old name. I could be completely wrong though, I don't know much about this stuff..
