If I use the name Elmo on youtube is that copyright?

As long as your 'Elmo' account/name cannot be confused with Sesame Street's Elmo, then I think you should be ok. The name Elmo has been around for a long time; long before Sesame Street came along!
I think most copyrighted/trademarked names are mostly things like... Darth Vader or whatever. A name that is iconic & created solely for the purpose of the movie/story that it was seen in.
