storage account name blob setup: "Validation could not be completed due to an error. If this issue persists, please contact support."

when creating blob storage from the free services section i get the following error:
"Validation could not be completed due to an error. If this issue persists, please contact support."

This issue is stopping me from creating a blob storage as the storage account name needs to be validated before the blob storage is created.

I have tried multiple names between 3 and 24 characters and still get this issue, better yet, when i enter something that the validation would not allow, it tells me that its wrong, this issue only shows up when a valid name is entered.

Does anyone know if i am doing something wrong or if this is a known issue that Microsoft is fixing?
