    And just an FYI to everyone, although last week's TBR will likely not be equaled for a very long time (if ever), this week is also shaping up to be quite good so you better hit the bank for more funds.

    Who's going to bring home the BACON?

    Nice name, but almost to generic for me. Other flipping it, what could you do with it? I could see the plural being a site with links or resources or products, but I'm drawing a blank on what to do with the singular...maybe a site on what it means to be Canadian?

    Virtually any charity or non-profit that begins with "Canadian..." would view it as an upgrade, and there is also the potential for smaller profit-based company to buy it as well.

    The first thought I had was some kind of super reference site on Canadian based organizations, indicating their stated purpose, length of time in operation, nonprofit or other status, contact information, etc. This could be helpful, although clearly a big job. Once established I think it would get enough traffic for reasonable monetization of traffic.

    Another thought that comes to my mind would be for those who provide immigration related aid to those coming to Canada, or things like foreign worker facilitation, etc.

    It would be a great name for a reference site on all things Canadian. Trivia, accomplishments, firsts, etc.

    There are several big Canadian businesses that use Canadian prominently, and might have interest, perhaps for a philanthropic arm.

    R3.ca went for $1550 at Sibername

    Edit:

    Susan.ca just closed at $1550 at Sibername as well

    Nice ~$3k profit for Siber on just these 2 names alone

    I've had

    CanadianAutoCredit.ca
    CanadianBowling.ca
    CanadianDrones.com/.ca
    CanadianFashion.ca
    CanadianFitness.ca
    CanadianRunning.ca
    CanadianTissueBank.com/.ca
    CanadianTradelaw.ca
    CanadianWork.ca
    CanadaVending.ca

    and no one seems interested in any, I let about another 6-7 Canadian names drop

    These are tricky sells as the .ca extension implicitly says the same thing as a Canadian, or Canada prefix.

    I would agree with Josh but I recently looked into how many sales there have been with the word "Canada" or "Canadian", and it's pretty impressive:

    - 330 reported sales with the word "Canada" among all extensions (7 were .CA; 17 were .ORG)

    - 137 reported sales with the word "Canadian" among all extensions (3 were .CA; 7 were .ORG).

    - And total of 485 domains sold when searching "Canad" (counting variations like Canadia.com, which sold for over 3K USD less than a month ago).

    I think the only countries that beat us as a keyword is "USA", "China" and "India". USA beats everyone by far, but we're only 200-300 sales behind behind China and India. UK is also up there but there are far too many words that include "uk" in them so it's hard to judge.

    I'm 100% certain there has also been a ton of unreported sales with the word Canada or Canadian. Canada definitely has a good reputation, even the domain game :)

    I'm bowing out of the auction at $1000 USD. I don't think I would be able to sell it quickly enough. If it was Canada.org I would stick around.

    Is this actually on the TBR for next week or are we reading it wrong?

    Like I said, this isn't last week in terms of sheer numbers, but it's full of top domains just the same.

    The sheer number of female first-names is incredible, even at the halfway point.

    I dropped a bunch of mid to low tier ones I registered via a Rebel deal last year. Rightfully so, there was no interest and I'm out a few bucks on the gamble. C'est la vie

    Sure, but a lot of these are of the "registered since at least 2000 and dropped because of "you now what" variety. I mean, who drops the Queen on purpose?

    Oh wow, didn't get far enough in the list t see the Queen's name..that's top-tier

    Still not sure of why these great names are dropping, but I assume it's not a good situation. And by no means was I comparing my names to these, just putting it out there that I contributed to the ladies getting dropped this week :)

    It's not good news at all, and it starts with an "O" and ends with a "Y". :xf.sick:

    As for the first names that are dropping, well some of them anyway, the owner is still very much alive. Just not sure what is happening.

    Yep, I'm referring to the other two people, who (I believe) mostly use Rebel (and some ArcticNames, I think). One has privacy, the other not.

    As for what's happening on the DL end, I have no idea.

    I was thinking $7-$8K when it ends, but who knows.
