If you want to change the name on your present account, that requires a Name Change Token purchase. Name Change Tokens cannot be purchased with credits or DTs:
http://www.imvu.com/store/store_us.php

Note: even if all you want is capitalization for a current name, you will still need a Name Change Token.

If you want to get rid of the Guest from in front of your name, that requires a separate purchase: http://www.imvu.com/accountcatalog/product_info.php?products_id=199

If you want the name of an inactive account, and you want to change the name of your present account to that name, that requires you to notify Customer Support (click 'Help' in the upper right hand corner of almost any IMVU page, then 'Get Support', then 'submit a case') to close that account. You must purchase the name change token first.

They will not 'hold' names. It is first come, first serve. If you see a name you want, buy it now before someone else does.

The account must have been inactive for at least 12 months (1 year) before you can buy it.

The account name must not have been involved with fraud; those names are gone for good to avoid any future confusion.

It the last log in date on the account says "00/00/00" it has been inactive long enough to ask for.

To check if a name is available use this link:

http://avatars.imvu.com/ TYPE NAME HERE

If it redirects to your landing page (the one with Pulse on it) the name is not being used. Staff can tell you if the name is available (some names have been permanently removed/banned due to various reasons).

IMVU retains the ability to reclaim any unused names.

IMVU can reclaim any user names that meet the following characteristics:
- No login in 12 months
- Has not purchased their name (Guest_ account)
- Has not made any purchases through the IMVU store

A user disabled account may also be added if it meets the following:
- No login in 12 months
- Has not purchased their name (Guest_ account)

Users may also ask for a name that is in use (or user disabled) if it meets the above criteria. For the user to get that name, they must:
- User must own their name
- Purchase a name change token
- Contact support and let support know the name they wish to buy using their name change token
