Will deleting my wow account free up wow classic character names?

I have two battlenet/wow accounts and I would like to re-use some names I have on my 1st account on my 2nd account.
I believe there is a 90 day wait if I just delete the characters on my 1st account, but given I don’t really use that account, If I delete the account will that immediately free up the character names for re-use?

For such questions on WoW, it is best to use the WoW forums… and in particular, the Customer Support category:
