To, make unique youtube name, Click on Customize Channel.
In Channel Customization, you can see Layout, Branding and Basic Info in the top navigation.

If your channel didn’t meet the custom name threshold, you will only see the Channel URL which is located just before Custom URL name.

To change youtube name to unique name you have to delete your current youtube URL name.
Click on the DELETE, located under your current youtube url name.
Under basic info, if you have nick name remove it for now. Don’t worry we will restore everything after unique name. Write the unique name in First name and leave the blank in Last name. In this demo, I am going to write MrKeshab and remove the Last name. Save and go back.
Now, let’s go back to YouTube customization page and refresh the page. The old youtube custom name is removed and now I have option to choose new name, which include, MrKeshab, the one which I just created in profile.
