    We had a WordPress blog a few years ago and deleted it. We’d now like to use it again, but can’t because it says that murchison-hume.wordpress is taken?! How do we re-establish our Blog with our name? We own the rights to this name!

    The blog I need help with is maxkater.wordpress.com.

    Do you have an international trademark?
    You don’t own any rights to any blog URL here or anywhere.

    Blogs are owned by the person who registered them under their username accounts. The address murchison-hume.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Only lowercase letters (a-z) and numbers are allowed.

    The address http://murchisonhume.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Sorry, that site is reserved!

    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.

    You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered any blog to access it.

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

    He timethief,

    We are indeed the owners of the international trademark. And we registered this blog domain / username several years ago, but due to unfortunate usability concerns, we migrated to Blogger.

    Several years later, we are now interested in readopting WordPress to handle our Blog. We would like use of our international trademark, and would like to speak with an admin or WordPress representative regarding the issue.

    It’s not possible to register any domain with a hyphen in it here. The address murchison-hume.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Only lowercase letters (a-z) and numbers are allowed.

    If you believe you registered the murchisonhume username account then the blog at http://murchisonhume.wordpress.com is reserved.

    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.

    Please go through the links TT provided. Someone somewhere registered that username and if it was you, then those steps will get you control of the blog.
