Can't create Data Factory

I'm trying to create my first data factory in a free subscription. It keeps telling me that the name is already taken. I've used a totally random strings of characters and it won't take it. I've tried about 20 different iterations.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Up to 10 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 3.0 MiB each and 30.0 MiB total.

Not able to reproduce this. I tried to create ADF in East US 2 with RFDataFactoryDemo and the name is accepted. Could you try this once? Also try this in different browser or in private mode.

I've tried Chrome, Edge and Firefox and I've tried two different locations. Still getting the same answer. It's starting to get annoying...might have to switch to AWS.

@robertfrasca-8726 Sorry for your trouble. In which region you are trying to create the data factory ? I have tried to create in EAST US and it is not showing me any errors.
Please can you clear your browser cache's or as suggested by @vaibhavchaudhari try creating it using on InPrivate/Incognito browser.
Can you try creating using the same name - "datafactory233" which I have tried to check for East US and share us your result please ?
