    I want to change my blog address.
    I own the new name that I want to change it to but WordPress tells me “sorry that name already exists”.
    How do I resolve this?

    The blog I need help with is mashariki.wordpress.com.

    If you own your own custom domain name – you want to map an existing name – not change it or register it again

    Hi auxclass – thanks so much for your response but it’s not a custom domain name I want to use. I own themainprotagonist.wordpress.com and I’d like to change mashariki.wordpress.com to that name.
    Any ideas how? When I follow the prompts on how to change your blog address WordPress tells me that name already exists. How can I let it know that yes I am the owner of the new name?
