I am trying to get a particular name for my blog, but it says it’s taken. But when I browse there, it says the blog has been deleted. Can I get the name? :) Angel… The blog I need help with is angelmccoy.wordpress.com. May 21, 2012 at 8:17 pm #894668 feartheseedsMember Nope. WordPress policy is to never recycle usernames or blog names. Once they’re deleted, they’re gone forever.
