Regional FlagName Already Taken?Source

Before I bought my own Serial Key, I shared an account with another person. I got tired of the fact that I have to share a friend’s list and have to stick with his guilds. My character’s name was “Teletric” and I deleted it after I bought the serial key and in one minute, it was taken? How? Is it because you cannot have the charecter’s name the same as your account name, or is it because of something else? Please answer.

You must wait 24 hours before you can take an unassigned name. I don’t think someone else took the name, but that you were trying before the 24 hours had elapsed. I believe if you try at the 24-hour mark, you’ll be able to get your name.
