Remember when it was bad enough when your neighbor or a relative took that baby name you just really, really wanted? Now, in the digital age, what if that domain name you really wanted is gone? Aaagh, panic time!
If you’ve gotten a domain name linked to your own last name, you’re safe, as you can just “bequeath” that domain name to your children. However, if you want a domain name such as “johnsmith.com” or something, you might be outta luck. While there are innumerable sites like Baby Name Wizard that can help you find out the meaning of names, and the like, parents are becoming more desperate.
Yes, according to a report, so much angst appears around baby names that books like Baby Name Wizard (from the same people that run the site above) have been written to find the perfect name for people.
Laura Wattenberg, founder of Baby Name Wizard, said the following, about parental angst:
“We all want our kids to be distinctive, and that’s created a kind of arms race because we might want to be different from one another but our tastes are very much the same. Parents type a first and last name into Google and feel panicked when it’s taken, or when the domain name is taken.”
Let’s be honest: as time goes on you’re not going to find the matching Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, domain name, or whatever that matches your baby’s name. Just give your baby a name you like, and hopefully they will like it as well.
