I can't take the name "Chris Morgan", because there's another user with that name. Why? Surely this value is only used for display and my email address is the only thing it really cares about?
Stack Exchange permit the display name to be anything you like, whether or not someone already uses that name. That is a sensible approach.
I can be ChrisMorgan, but I'd rather be Chris Morgan.
