    Pros:
    - 8 years old
    - CarolStore and CarolShop both listed at high premiums on GD, with Carol having an average sale price of $5050 and Store at 2377
    - Pro: There are 1 million people in the US named Carol

    Cons:
    - CarolsShop still available (didn't find out till after)
    - Looks like people prefer Caroline for baby names now, although Carol is a short form
    - Popularity of the baby name has gone from 20-30k per year in the 60's to sub 200 per year now
    - Using the 200 most common female names in the US, only 89 are regged (____sstore .com)


    Do I:
    1) Drop
    2) Sell Christmas carols on it (haha)
    3) Double down and also reg CarolsShop

    Many thanks!

    It is hard to decide. I usually stay away from too specific names like this one. They are hit-or-misses. Even though the chances for one of that 1 mill Carols contact you for it is very thin, if they really want it, you could demand a fancy price.

    Don't drop it. Don't renew it either. Let's wait until it expires.

    Or as you said sell Christmas carols on it. :xf.grin:

    Thanks for the advice! Do you think doing outbound emails would be a useful idea in this case?

    I have never done it by myself. I believe that won't be a bad idea. And it will boost the chances like 10 times. But do some research first. There are so many things to consider. Like not being a spammer. Avoid using your primary personal email (May be it will get black listed). etc.

    Good luck. :xf.smile:
