OK if we flag it to disallow doing your own name?

Plus I think it should be a current name. For example, Alex's old username shouldn't be in the mix. Not sure if those (non-current prior names) show up in searches (member search page).

Maybe I should finally change my username...

It's kinda hard to define "Current Name"... Do you mean, not a name that was previously used but changed, or a name that's been banned, or a name that's had its account closed, or a name that's not currently active? And if the latter is included, how far back do we go in defining "inactivity"? 'Cuz in a sense, what can be disappointing about this kind of challenge is that there are tens of thousands of inactive-but-present usernames and it's not hard to cherry-pick one for a picture you like...

Hrmmmmm...

I wouldn't worry about inactive usernames. I was just thinking it should be what is currently in use for any member regardless of status (registered vs paying member vs old non-active user).

For example, using Jake as an example ... if you search on his "old" username it doesn't show up. I think if the username shows up when you plug it in it should be fine to use.

Or even easier to know or look is to just look at the list of usernames on the profile page.

Yah I was just doin' that :-) It's AMAZING how many of the 2002 joiners never, ever entered, posted, voted, or commented yet have STILL not asked to have their accounts terminated (a request we often get on the Admin tickets)...
