    I have currently reg my:

    1. firstname/lastname;
    2. my wive's firstname/middleinitial/lastname;
    3. also her - first-name-initial/middle-name-initial/ lastname;
    4. Her famiies' last name;
    5. Full name of a 19th Century prominent - semi-famous relative.

    Had but dropped years ago the firstname/lastname of a famous numerous generations back relative - planned to do a site, never got around to it and let it go in the event another " relative " wanted it.

    Did not attempt to sell it.

    Have not acquired nor intend to acquire any other firstname/lastname domains unless a variant of our names.

    FN + LN is trending now.

    Never registered or acquired FN or LN.

    Inquired a name which can be a first name also last name. Seller asked high six figures for that one, immediately rejected.

    I posted the following response on a similar thread -

    Super popular name combos that don't target any one specific person I don't have much issue with.

    For example JohnSmith.com sold for $5634 on NJ because of the potential tens of thousands of end users for one like that.

    These type of domains are extremely valuable to the right end user when it comes to personal branding fields like design, real estate, etc. There is also a vanity aspect owning this kind of name over the thousands of other people who share it.

    They do sell, but getting the right balance is challenging.

    I have two FNLN .coms

    TeresaHo.com
    LisaStarr.com

    and Tomoko.cc Japanese given name

    Remote Working and Personal Branding may coincide to freshen interest in FNLN

    I have no idea. I would be highly skeptical.
    If it actually did, it is a ridiculous outlier.

    Anyone planning on doing anything online should try to obtain their full name as their domain name..
    Owning yours adds credibility to you and your online representation!

    I convinced & helped obtain my friends full name.. (in .com) ten years later, he still owns and actively uses his domain.. 😊

    Waste of time.

    I have my surname and would have paid loads to get it. On this basis I bought a few common surnames. Getting any traction above 3 digits has been impossible.

    Would not want to think of trying to get lucky with FNLN.

    I have my cousin's first/last in .org and I keep forgetting to tell him. One cool thing about it, it was first registered in 1999. A fairly common name.

    Some guy holds my last name in .com since 2002 for whatever reason. Doesn't want to sell, either.
    I have .pl (used for mail by me and another family members) and .eu, used to have .net but dropped it.
    For vanity reasons I also have fn+ln and two forms (main and diminutive) of my first name in .pl. :xf.rolleyes:

    I used to own ibisfernandez.com. It's common name. I got it from a catch service site. I received a $60 offer and I countered with $200. The buyer cancelled the offer. I let it expire 4 or 5 years later.

    I have quite a few FirstInitialLastName.com, FirstNameLastInitial.com, and FNLN.coms. I typically looks for combinations that would sound good as a standalone brand in addition to being a personal site. Haven't had much luck selling though. Anyone tried outbound with these types of domains.

    I really want my FNLN domain, but I'm not willing to pay enduser pricing (does somewhere here have it? I'll trade you a domain or something haha)
