Thanks

Launchpad shares a username namespace with other services that authenticate against SSO (login.ubuntu.com / login.launchpad.net), and somebody has registered that username there, so it's been reserved in Launchpad to avoid future confusion. I'm afraid it doesn't look safe for us to free it up for you.
