    If you do change your blog address, permalinks to your old address, including search engine results, will be broken unless you purchase a Site Redirect upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/

    Changing a blog address without purchasing a site redirect upgrade has negative consequences.

    Followers follow blog URLs.
    If the URL changes as you propose to do then the existing followers will not be following the new blog URL until they subscribe to it.
    Stats are also strictly associated with URLs. The new URL starts from zero.
    Pagerank and authority are also strictly associated with URLs. The new URL stars from zero.

    Hi I want to use the blogname listen2change.wordpress.com. I get the message it is been used. However when I type the address it says the blog with this name has been deleted by it’s previous owners.
    Is it possible to use the name after it has been deleted?
