Personal domain names.

Is this a good idea, or not?

I just got offered my own name as a web site domain.
This is apparrantly the in-coming new idea.
I like the look of it, and its priced quite cheap.
So I'm going for it, but I would like to know what
other members of the forum think of it.

Don't know what is new about it. I have owned my name.com for years, and my sons name and a few other relatives too. I don't use any of them, but I might sometime. Just good to own them.

well..its not a new idea. I tried registering my last name a few months ago and all I could get was the .org extension.

The first name were gone long ago.
You were offered the name as the domain owner wants to make money out of it and might be making an offer with the perception that you would be the right person with emotional attachment to that name..and will end up paying more for it than someone else who is not know by that name.
