Cannot rename a page back to its original name

I may be overlooking something simple but I have a page on my site that was originally called “Sellers”. Sometime in the past I may have deleted this page and recreated it. The problem is that when I did it got renamed to sellers-2. I tried to rename it back to sellers but it only got bumped up to another name sellers-3, then sellers-3-2 etc.

For some reason the system won’t let me use sellers anymore. I am aware that if a page is in the trash that I need to delete it permanently then try again with the new name but I do not have any pages in my trash. Is there maybe something in the database that may be preventing this? If so where do I track this down?

I will really like to get the original name back.

This is wp 3.0.4
