Several things for you to remember:

  • You can’t change the username of that particular page once you set it.
  • You can’t transfer the ownership of a username to another party.
  • You can’t violate anyone elses trademark rights.
  • If you are acquiring a username to sell it in the future (squatting), you will lose it.
  • Usernames may be reclaimed for other unauthorized usages.

So choose a username for your page before anybody else takes it as usernames are totally on the first come first serve basis.
