I changed the name of my blog from ‘The Salad Queens’ to ‘Beaver Tales’. I wanted the URL to change accordingly, but it doesn’t seem to be doing that automatically. I’m not sure why. I would like for the URL to change without paying.
The blog I need help with is thesaladqueens.wordpress.com.
You cannot register a site URL when it has already been registered. https://beavertales.wordpress.com/
https://thebeavertales.wordpress.com has also been registered.
Technically you can leave a comment if comments are open and ask for that person to transfer the site to your username account. Transferring a Blog to Another WordPress.com User or Account https://en.support.wordpress.com/transferring-a-site-to-another-wordpress-com-account/
You can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/
Adding a New Site or Blog to an Existing Account https://en.support.wordpress.com/create-a-blog/#adding-a-new-site-or-blog-to-an-existing-account
Then if you wish to you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade because it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is when you are domain mapping.

re: changing a .wordpress.com address
We cannot edit any blog URLs. If you want to change the .wordpress.com blog address ie. the URL starting with http:// then you must be logged in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog to do that and the URL you desire must be available. If so, then you can change the URL by using the guide http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/ Then all the content will be the same only the URLs will change and nothing else.

Changing a URL is meant to be a permanent and irreversible act. No changed or deleted blog URLs are recycled here, regardless of who registered and deleted them and the only exceptions are made are for URLs that were deleted 2 or more years ago
