      1. Google will do this for you too. If you try to register a name that's unavailable, it will suggest a few alternatives that are similar to what you requested. If you don't like any of them, just back out of the registration process and try again with something else.

  3. Just wanted to say that this worked very well for me! It was easier to create emails for my kids knowing what was already taken. Thank you
