Hi @Juan Carlos González Martín,

 

Isn't the easiest way just to go to http://requiredtenantname.sharepoint.com/ or  even better http://requiredtenantname-admin.sharepoint.com/ if you get a login then it's been taken.

 

if you get 

This site can’t be reached

then it is free.

Interesting workaround, but I like the approaches suggested
Looks like it does just that :)

Great idea. But if the Tenant ist a Exchange Online only Tenant it will not work.

Hi Joerg,

 

It can also start to do a Trial and see if the Tenant name is active.
