However when i search for it, it does not exist. Is there something I am doing wrong with regards to changing my name? The blog I need help with is fitnesshealthguidance.wordpress.com.

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.
