I think that they should allow name changes once per update. Since there is a version update every few months, that is enough time to be able to choose a new name, but still make you think long and hard whether you like the name or not, since there is no defined release date for each version update.
Da name changing seems liek awesome sauce and I might change my username to RedstoneShuffler even though I would change it back later but then some weirdo comes along and renames their person "shufflesninja" and I am stuck out of that username eternally so yes I think that
I have a suggestion for this. What about aliases? You change your name. And no one can take your old one. You can also switch back to it if you want. I don't know if aliases will work for backward compatibility or not.
What do you guys at Mojang think about the aliases idea?
Finally! A chance to change my name! I'm so excited, my old name just doesn't make sense at all and its way to long. Hopefully I'll be able to change it to something more simple and short. I'm tired of people mistaking me for a guy ._.

So what your saying is that one of my best friends can finally change their name? Awesome, since they refused to play since they didn't like their name... I know several people who will benefit from this.
Minecraft still needs a friends system so you can track the changes in your friend's names/ maybe join the server they're on.
(And maybe have a nickname in parentheses after their IGN as per you own choice, kinds like Steam.)
Just saying that would be cool and useful to the greater part of the community, and if you don't like it, you can just ignore it entirely.
Great! I do see some of the problems, but you see someone (a guy) gave me my account. I'm a girl. And guess what the username was? (ThePerfectDude) HORRIBLE!!! People called me gay because of that and I had a girl skin. BECAUSE i'M A GIRL!!!! So i cant wait to change it,
