If the system says it's in use then you can't get it. It could in use on another Microsoft service.

Xbox Live is not the only service to use the 'gamertag' system. It is entirely possible the name you desire might be in use on Zune.

It could be the spacing: if you tried to change to "Danno McK", you'd be told it was taken (because I have DannoMcK), but you couldn't send a friend request to the version with the space.
