If it says the name was taken, unfortunately that means it is.

It could be you couldn't find it because it uses different spacing or capitalisation (neither of which the system treats as differentiating two names). It may also be in use on another Microsoft service that uses Gamertags.

Yeah but when I search the name on xbox to see if someone is even using it, it says the name is not valid - it should say the gamertag is in use or taken if someone is using the name... Where is the xbox team support thats who i need to speak with...

Again, if the system says it is taken or invalid, there is no way to request it as it has deemed it cannot allow someone else to use it.

Also, the system does not recognize things like spaces as making a gamertag unique. So even though you're looking up the gamertag one way, the person who has it may have it spaced out differently or something.

As Maxen said, if the system says it's taken, then it is taken in some way.
