Just out of idle curiosity, has anyone here gotten a .name (or know of anyone) domain yet?

Yeah, I got one. Can you Spam now. They are just what the spammer ordered. Now they know your name.

I have had a .name site up for over a month now..
pretty crappy at this point...havent had time to fully develop it.

(I added it in my profile)

As you can see,

the search phrase "baby name" is searched for about 600,000 times a month just from overture! So I have an excellent market .

The .names will have limited appeal..I believed I have probably come as close to identifying one of the few markets for .name

I got register.dot.name !

Very cool CHC.. !

Personally .name is pretty lame..
but who knows..I picked up 2 I can use anyways .. and if .Name is ever fully marketed then we have some added value to the names..

i picked one up to use for a fun site i'm planning ... at my current work rate, it'll go live in about 25 years time ...

My .name is already taken, but I don't care cos I've already got www.myname.com :)

I think a .com is best. Even for non-commercial sites. Even for non-American sites. It's the big one, the one with respect. You can't beat .com (IMHO).
