On YouTube, I would like to start a new channel with a particular name. However, that name has previously been used by a channel that is now closed.

The channel-page shows the following message:

"This channel is no longer available because the user has closed their account."

Is there any way that I could get the name of that channel for my own, new account?


No there is no way you can do that. This kind of restriction is not only for YouTube Channel names but also for email-addresses from all service providers and many more.
