Trying to create name--says name is already taken?

Yesterday I created a new account, and tried to give it a name that I thought was decent. But when I tried to create it, it said the summoner name had already been taken. But the interesting thing is when I tried to who had the name, it said no one held the name I wanted. I tried using Riot's in game client as well, and it still said "summoner not found." So what's going on? Is some ghost holding on to my name?
