Azure AD Tenant recreation (un-register/re-register tenant name)

I have an Azure AD Tenant that has been configured with an incorrect "Country or Region" setting. I understand that the "Country or Region" setting cannot be changed so I'm going to need to remove the existing Tenant and create a new Azure AD Tenant. When creating the new Tenant I need to use the same name as the existing Tenant that currently has the incorrect Region.

Am I able to Un-register, or get Microsoft to Un-register, the existing Tenant name to allow me to re-use it when creating a new Tenant with the correct "Country or Region" setting?

E.g. the existing Tenant is MyTenant.onmicrosoft.com and I need to reuse this name when creating the new tenant.

Follow the steps here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/users-groups-roles/directory-delete-howto
Goes without saying, backup any data first.

The article details how to delete a tenant in Azure Active Directory which is great. However, after the Tenant has been deleted can I re-use the previous Tenant Name when creating a new one?

That's the general idea.
