    CVCV .com would you take a Y and if not, Y?

    from observation of requests posted in domains wanted section, i've noticed some rejections of the letter "Y" as a vowel

    along with budgets that are typically less than $2,000 per name, one can't help but wonder what kind of submissions they are getting

    let's say i owned "foxy com and sexy com", and was naive enough to submit them for that budget.

    well, according to the criteria in some threads, they probably wouldn't qualify and i might get reported, huh?

    :)

    what you thank?


    imo.....

    I'm in the USA, and consider "Y" to work for CVCV as in your examples (foxy and sexy -- and I would try like heck to get them for $2K from you LOL).

    But like you said, if a user asks for CVCV, I sometimes PM them asking if "Y" is acceptable. I have seen some CVCV Search Filters include "Y", and some do not.(depends on the site -- I think GoDaddy Auctions does include "Y" for that pattern).

    Maybe a rule can be established in the Domains wanted section that "Y" is acceptable for CVCV unless specified that it is NOT. (or vice versa).

    Regards,
    DN

    Sometimes, the letter y is a consonant, and other times it is a vowel. The rule for telling the two apart is simple: The letter y is a consonant when it is the first letter of a syllable that has more than one letter. If y is anywhere else in the syllable, it is a vowel.

    Examples of Y as a Consonant
    • yes
    • yam
    • yell
    • yellow
    • yogurt
    Examples of Y as a Vowel
    • gym
    • my
    • cycle
    • baby
    • hairy
    • sky

    You would be a fool not to consider buying the name Fyre just because it has a Y. There are thousands of good names that have Y as a vowel.

    It depends on the letters. FOXY is certainly a lot better than FYXO :)
