    I've recently hand regged 2 Domain Names which is a Name Domain

    Eg: WilmaJohnson.com
    GeorgeWilliamson.com

    Are they worth it? I mean there are 900+ who've got the same name,

    And guess what, these were expired Domains, According to Way Back machine, these type of domains are & were owned by HUGEDOMAINS

    Are these type of names worth it? Or should I focus on something else (Just Experimenting)

    Thanks in Advance! Have a nice day folk.

    Unless it is something like JohnSmith.com those names would not be investment grade.

    If I owned it John Smith would find some legal way of getting it off me.

    I've got a few names (two, not 3) and I've sold a couple over the years but unless you are going to open a fan site, they can be difficult to sell. As said above, if you have a common name ending in Smith, Brown, etc. you may have a better chance of moving. Sadly, I turned down 500 for a name I purchased thinking a newborn in the family would have that name...turns out a regional celebrity (another part of the country) has the same name and made an offer. I hope they come back with another offer in 2020!

    I like GeorgeWilliamson but not the other.
    With my personal experience, I've seen male name seems to be selling more than female name.
    Also I've sold several 2 word person names to date but they're not easy to sell and always try to buy low and not invest much in each 2 word person domain.

    Because a defence of any sort requires money eg: claim I endorsed a product that John Smith doesn't. Any angle. Perhaps could defend John Smith with one from phonebook. I have seen letters from lawyers for using a youtube code so even if all baseless and no clue you still have to waste time money defending and knowing my luck crap happens is all. Others might fair better but your still talking first last names and desirable.

    your subject to penalties much more than just losing the name if someone with the name decides to go after you.
