You can go to http://twittercounter.com - type the name you wanted in the search box, and then towards the bottom of the stats screen there is a link for "Claim this username."

You enter your email, and they'll let you know if the user ever abandons the name and Twitter re-releases it to the public.

Just try to be more creative and to choose the name which really appeals to you. I think you are gong to be the only one with such a name.

Indead a nice tip about TwitterCounter.

I have the usernames I want (I'm being VERY original, and use my name), but it's cool to see the statistics

Made some revisions and went with my original creation, that my wife recommended and I now have a Tweet on my Twitter account.

Their is still an option here for you. You can sign up for it by having some extra characters in your profile name. I hope you 'll definitely think about my suggestion.
