    This is a hard one.
    First of, you could contact the owner of the name you desire and perhaps work out a deal.

    An alternative would be to pick a non common name to begin with.
    I don't know about stats on Peter Bruce but my guess is that is more than a common name.

    Your third alternative would be a new name. I hope that should you pick a new name, you pick something that is not common.

    You could also try to spell it in different ways but I have a feeling that's not an option for you. Its a bad idea anyways if you want to be found. A name like Sasquats Uncle would be easier to remember than Bruc3 Peters0n. Right?

    Just my 2 cents. Hope it helps. :)

    I was thinking about adding 2 to the end. Isn't easy for others to remember though IMO.

    Looking for something creative that would be easily remembered.

    You can t do better if you want to keep your name intact.
    To resume the only choice you can have is 2 or 3 letters or numbers before or after your original name. Or another choice is to mix mumber with your orignal name. For exemple use number 3 for "e" p3t3rbruc3 ...

    Yeah, Using numbers in your name really confuses things. Also looks unprofessional.

    Use your site's most important keyword.

    If that's already taken, use your site's second most important keyword.

    If THAT's already taken, use your site's third most important keyword.

    Etc...
