    renaming the blog from http://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=name-change gives the same message

    Ok, you have definitely found an interesting one here. I’m unable to duplicate this myself, so I’m not sure what’s blocking it here.

    Just to be sure, simsimy was definitely never registered and deleted? You just started with a blogless account and never registered it?

    Yes, I’ve never used simsimy.

    BUT!
    I did some digging in my mailbox.
    It seems that I have/had another user (with the same email)- miertarum – activated on 21/11/2008.
    I’ve few password reset’s with that username and then, on 01/02/2011 a password reset with simsimy as username.
    The even weirder part is that I got reset password email with SimSimy as username (rather than simsimy) on 17.10.11
    (I’m quite sure there ware some email’s I’ve deleted during the years)

    As miertarum was a nickname I used 5 years ago and started using simsimy few years ago, I guess that at some point I registered to wp.com with another user (simsimy) and the same e-mail address. When I try to reset my wp.com password with my email, I receive SimSimy as username and when I try to reset the password with “miertarum” as user it just says the password reset mail is sent but I don’t get the email.

    I’m not sure if this is relevant but it is weird so I thing it’s worth mentioning

    Just to be clear – I’ve never had wp.com blog with neither simsimy nor miertarum.

    That is weird, I’m not sure if it’s related though. We’re going to look into this, and we’ll let you know when we have something.

    Any news?

    Not yet. We suspect it may have something to do with the reserved checker being cases-sensitive, as blog names can only be lowercase and your name is SimSimy (which is odd, as that should be lowercase only too).

    well, can you simply change my user to lowercase? It doesn’t really metter

    No, we can’t. That’s part of what we’re trying to figure out. Hang in there, and I’ll let you know as soon as we have something.
