    they're either reserved by FB itself to prevent abuse/selling them for $$$$ or by somebody who was thinking about selling them, i think the former scenario is more likely

    Yes, in the case of the former, some websites will prevent users from registering certain usernames or URLs that contain offensive words like rape to prevent abuse.

    It could also be that these people have deactivated their accounts so they wont show up as a page but they still technically have the rights to /fitness etc... Facebook is old so some young people probably made an account and let it sit dormant so FB deactivated it....

    Or people are selling the pages.
