I actually want to start a new name and start my achievements over and keep all the downloads I've payed for. Is there anyway I can do this?
I actually think it is a good thing they charge people to change gamertags. I think it discourages the abuse that name changes bring.

That's actually something I've been wondering about: I'ld like to open another account for my wife (so she can have her own high scores, acheivements, etc.), but would that mean we'ld have to pay for the same xbox live marketplace games again?
Actually they are tied to the gamertag and the the hard drive they were purchased on. As long as you stay on the same hard drive as the one you bought them on then anyone can play them. If you download them and they are not on the hard drive you purchased them on then your gamertag would be the only one allowed to play them.

They are actually tied to your hard drive not the xbox. You can swap out hard drives to other xboxes and not have to worry about the DRM issues.
