    Hi

    I’m not entirely sure about that, but I guess blog names reservation occurs only with the name of a registered user, i.e. if I create a user called pedger, the pedger.wordpress.com will be automatically reserved.

    Do you have a username that matches the blog name you want to register? If not, I guess there’s nothing you can do to get that name for your blog. (more info on Recycling Blog Addresses (URLs))

    As stated on Create a Blog support page:

    Reserved Site Names/URLs

    When a WordPress.com user signs up for an account we reserve the URL of their username. So if they signed up for the username of exampleuser we would reserve exampleuser.wordpress.com for them. There is nothing we can do to unreserve it and you will need to choose a different name.

    Perhaps my bad english makes it difficult for me (and other helpful people), but I am a user: chsegerfeldt. I have a blogg called ”Gubbröra”. Now I want to start another blogg: alkyone3. Where and how can I search to find out who is the user of that name, (which I still think is me, but how kan I find out?)

    Hi

    Do you have an accont named alkyone3? You can discover that by trying to recover the password here:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/account-recovery/
    or here:
    https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    If you do not own that username, it is likely that you will have to choose another blog name.

    hope that helps. If there’s anything else I can do, please get in touch

    Hi

    I was really trying to help. There’s no way I can check if you have a user unless you try what I suggested.

    If you need more help on that, please leave us a message.

    Thanks

    Staff cannot breach the privacy policy and provide that information to you.

    When we register a username account the matching blog is reserved for our future use. It cannot be obtained by anyone other than the person who has registered the matching username account.

    If and only if you have registered the matching username account log out, clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies. Then log in under the correct username account and as the blog is reserved for you and you will register it after logging in under the correct username account.
    https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/?user=1

    However, if you changed your username then the blog URL will not be available for use under the new username account.

    You can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    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.
