After deleting a Team and the reffering SharePoint Site the we couldn't assign the same name to a new SP-Site. Can someone tell me if the name is blocked for a certain time or forever? Thanks a lot.

@Christian Haltenhoff Teams and Groups are restorable for 30 days from when they are deleted, so you can't reuse the name in that period unless you force a delete. From SharePoint admin's view of deleted Teams you can force it to be removed permanently, then reuse the name.
