    The domain name has expired and is currently being auctioned on GoDaddy, at the time of writing this post the auction closes in 10 Hours, and the domain name had received 53 Bids and the price hit $1,825 USD but the question I ask is why?

    We see the First Name, Last Name domain name sell often on the secondary market often after they have been hand registered but I don’t regularly see the First Name, Last Name domains hitting these prices on Expired Auction Platforms.

    GoDaddy gives this domain name an estimate of $1,035 USD and shows comparable First Name, Last Name domain sales but I still don’t know who is bidding this much for

    Google has 9,740,000 results for the term Gregory Braun and exact match results of 16,500 results with the most probable person that might want to acquire the domain name being the below based on Google results

    Gregory Braun of Calvin University

    Gregory Braun of Braun and Rich Attorney Practice

    Could it be one of the other 122 Gregory Braun’s on LinkedIn?

    I may have no idea what I am talking about... but can a party sell and/or profit from a person's legal name? Let alone occupy/lay claim to their name, via a domain in this case.

    Also this cant be the first time that this subject has been brought up on NP
