Secret Santa code issue

I seem too have been allocated 3 nicknames. I got 2 emails, one with donator name of Xmas2015SantaB4438 and one with Xmas2015SantaA4438. Both address labels said the donator was Xmas2015SantaC4438. I can't change my name to Xmas2015SantaC4438 because it says the name is in use. Not sure what to do! Thanks.

Thanks Dawn. It's no biggie, I'm sending the gift tomorrow, I just want to make sure that it gets registered as being sent. Thanks.

I sent it today, luckily it has gone to the right Mumsnetter so no worries there. The label still has the wrong user name for the donor (it has a C not a B in it) but as long as its gone to the right person then that's all that matters! Thanks x
