There is no way to request a gamertag. The tag system is used on other Microsoft services as well so even if it's not in use on the 360 it could be in use elsewhere.

[/quote]You can't have the TheDuck because the gamertag The Duck exists.

LIVE ignores spaces and sees TheDuck and The Duck as the same thing.

If I put in TheDuck it gives me an error, but it does show up as The Duck which the gamertag system sees as being the same gamertag.

not case sensitive, space sensitive the duck and theduck are the same tag, there is an account named The Duck but if you try to change it to theduck (no spaces) it won't work cause it is in use with a space, just choose another name.

You should add another word before or after  "The Duck"  if you want it that bad
