Gamertag Problem/Question

Hey guys just a quick question on my Gamer-tag, ok so i want to change my Gamer-tag to DeadDisciple. Currently it's DeadDisciple2, the 2 is annoying and i would like to not have any numbers in my tag, so i got the points to be able to change the tag to DeadDisciple except it says the tag is already in use. I went to my friends list and added the tag as a friend just to be sure that it's already in use and the message i keep getting is that the tag does not exist on Xbox Live, so i should be able to change it then right? This is frustrating, hope somebody can help, thanks.

Vernier is right. If it says it's taken, then it is being used somewhere on Microsoft's servers even if it's not an Xbox gamertag.
