Existing custom object

I get a message

 

 

Error: The object name you specified already exists for your organization. You must specify a unique name across custom objects and article types.

 

 

I understand there is already an existing custom object by this name.

I am logged in as system administration.and in my profile setting i cannot see this existing object,nor in my recycle idea.any idea where i should look into correct this.

Check for the 'API Name' of your custom objects, not the labels.  For example "My Object %" and "My Object $" would auto-create the same API name.
