Is this what my brother’s attempting with my daughter’s new account?

No, he says it’s just a placeholder: reserving her name now in case she wants to use it when she gets older. (Ohhhh, like reserving the Gmail address for your future married name, just in case, even though you seriously just started dating…. oh, or was that just me?)
