Description

From https://make.wordpress.org/themes/2017/07/24/july-meeting-agenda/#comment-43013

Since there is no way for authors to know whether a theme name has active installs or not (except a generic google search for existing themes with same name), a simple interface to check this would help.

If active installs cannot be made public (for theme names not on wordpress.org), then a simple 'OK' / 'Not OK' can be shown (The limit as it stands currently is 50)

To be fair, "a generic google search for existing themes with same name" actually does a pretty damn good job of telling you when you need to select a different name.

Google search does not include theme names that are already taken in https://themes.svn.wordpress.org/
Not all authors know about it.
