Steam is an online gaming platform from the game development company Valve, where gamers can buy, play, create, and discuss PC games. The platform hosts thousands of games and downloadable content (DLC) like user-generated features or "mods" from large developers and indie game designers alike.
We can consider Steam a cloud-based gaming library. One of the most popular features of Steam is that it provides users the ability to use any computer to play games they buy or download to their Steam accounts. Steam also allows users to store an extensive collection of games in their Steam accounts without using too much of their computer memory. To use Steam, you just have to download and install the Steam engine or app on your computer. Once you do that, you can access the entire library of games, software, and forums.
Steam supports both text and voice chat, as seen in other messaging apps like WhatsApp, Slack, and Discord. You can add friends and chat individually or in groups with people you know and people you don't know. Many teens share their Steam usernames to play games and chat with their real-life friends. Further, since many gamers play Steam games across devices, they tend to use funny Steam names so that it’s easily memorable.

Are the Steam profile names unique?
No, the steam profile names aren't unique. Your steam profile is the name that your friends and other gamers will see, and they will use it to connect with you. You can always use an already existing steam profile name and real name. That’s why you can always see some people are using other’s funny steam names and not coming up with something new on their own. Some people are very creative, and they consistently impress others by keeping the best funny steam names.
In other words, if someone has “RedPanda” as their profile name, you can set your profile name as “RedPanda” as well. Similarly, if someone’s real name is “Bruce,” you can select your profile name as “Bruce” as well.
Can you change your steam account name?
The steam account name, which is once set while creating your account on Steam, can never be changed. Your steam ID and steam account name cannot be changed even by the steam support staff members. Your steam account name is the numeric identifier that is tied to your account, and it cannot be altered under any circumstances. The Exact reason behind this is unknown, but Steam has made it clear in their Terms and Conditions that it cannot be modified later in the future once it is set.
Can you include spaces in Steam Names?
Yes, the spaces can always be a part of your steam profile names and real names. However, this restriction is present on the steam account names. You cannot use spaces when you are creating an account name for a new account.
Your steam profile name is the name that is displayed on your profile and also when you are in the game playing a particular game. While on the other hand, your real name will be displayed on your profile under your profile name.
