Full Answer

A "Minecraft" username is initially created when registering a PC game copy after purchasing or redeeming a gift code. The mobile version of the game, "Minecraft: Pocket Edition," doesn't require a username. Video game console players use either an XBox gamertag or a Sony PlayStation Network ID, depending on the system used.

Mojang requires players to wait 30 days after initially registering or changing a username before they are allowed to change it again. The old username in a change is held for 37 days until the new username is confirmed, then released for re-use.

Players banned from a multiplayer server for misbehavior in-game cannot evade the ban by changing usernames. The server system tracks banned players based on a unique identification number assigned at initial game registration that can't be altered by players.
