Unable to change blog name but new name is available?

  1. jennamakesthings


    I would like to change my blog name to but when I attempt to do this from the Dashboard, it tells me that the site already exists. However when I go to this URL, it says that the " is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this blog.". Is it possible to change to this blog name please?

    Many thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. No. WordPress does not recycle account / blog names. The URL was deleted by the owner so now it is gone forever.

    You could modify the name, say with a number before or after or try something like J3nnamak3s…

    Or you could pay for a domain upgrade and register (or .net or one of the others) if it's available;

    OK, thanks for the quick reply. That's a shame. I'll have a look at the other options suggested.

  4. You're welcome. I'm sure you'll find a good name—how do you think I became 1tess? ≥^!^≤
