Taking the screenshot attached to this message as reference, I can add any letters that I want or even put a name there. But why is my old one is still there? So if I continue, it would be like adding more characters beside it, which is not what I intended to do. Please help and thank you in advance. My YouTube Account , desktop , Creator.

Did you move to a Brand Account too? I tried everything I can think of but YouTube doesn't allow me to pick anything else see attachment. Could this be the problem? Will the options change, in case I claim and then remove the Custom URL that has my legacy username in it?
Thank you in advance. Google user. Original Poster. Peter Yuki Kento. Ryan Chmait. Even I am going through the same problem. Youtube is asking me to add extra character.
I don't want to add any extra character becz doing so will change my brand name completely. I don't know how to fix this issue. Same freaking issue. They only give me an option of the account url I created when I was like I don't wan that one. It's been years that I've gone by a different channel name. Youtube wont get back to anyone either so it's frustrating. My account used to be under a different brand account about a month ago and has since been moved to another account.
Th old brand account has since been deleted. Add a few extra letters or numbers to make this URL unique to you. Even though no one has that url.
You need to go into settings click on your channel icon in the top right and select 'settings' from the dropdown. From here, you need to change your display name first.
