Ingame signup & Namecheck?

I'm working on a multiplayer game, where people can choose a "Player name". How do I go about if i want to have a name check for taken names already? I suppose i have to store in some kind of database somewhere. I want to store highscores and stats of the players as well. What are my options and is there any good solid solutions or should i consider setting up a Database myself? Maybe some password login would be required too?

Check out [plugin] firebase by rex. using the parse functionality in the plugin its pretty easy to set that up, i did it in like an hour

there's a "Parse Authentication" example that basically sets it all up for you.
