I settled for Hondo, however I'd much rather use the name Nigel.
As I'm sure you are aware, the BatteTag program is currently in Beta, and as such, can experience glitches. What you have discovered is one that has already been reported to the development team.
Sometimes simple things slip through the cracks.
For sure, I get that, but just one question:
Isnt a battletag REQUIRED for the Diablo 3 Beta now? If so, well, then THAT is a problem now isnt it?
Since it's still in Beta phase, our support capabilities are pretty limited at the moment. We do not have a way to set BattleTabs currently. We apologize sincerely for any inconvenience this has caused.
