    I just checked search.name and there is are DNS records being returned that point to http://193.109.220.143 -- So these names are operational and are in effect registry reserved.

    This makes sense to me and Afilias has done somthing similar with .INFO (some *AWESOME* .INFO's are registry reserved like MAIL.INFO). So having the .NAME registry do the same is not surprising or weird to me. In fact such behavior would seem to me to help maintain the intended use of .NAME in the face of potential missuse -- Something that would be important initially IMHO. Recall how many porn spammers were using .BIZ emails?

    I can understand why president.us or senator.us were reserved.
    I can't understand why or how they were allowed to reserve generic domains that have no significant meaning associated with the extension. Maybe it's ok to reserve family.name but party.name???
    There is no transparency in .name and I don't like that at all.

    in your browser or at whois.Name. But I got your point. As is the case w/ .us,(ie. president.us, senator.us), some names have been reserved/pulled/unavailable and apparently same is the case w/ domain.name and others you mention. I stand corrected, I used a bad example. Had searched domain earlier when only 3rd level available (Great.Domain, do.main, etc.) and when searched 2nd level had not tracked back to find out why domain.name wasn't avail.
    How about TopDomain.Name? Traffic.Name? Smart.Name? and for the naynamesayers (or "nonames"), Crappy.Name?

    Can't see any value in .name at all, even for a sur.name

    .name is a scam. There are very few good 2ld left after LR.

    Welcome to .name - This domain name is shared between many people with the same last name.

    Pets name in the .NAME use

    Just wondering if anyone interrupts the requirements so that pets can be legally registered?

    I grabbed a number of animal .NAME second levels for people who have expensive animals and wish to use the address to point to an existing URL along with having an alias e-mail.

    Ancestral.name

    Hoping the genealogical groups will be interested in purchasing the 3rd level of this for their surnames. Genealogy is a hot topic and will continue to grow as you already know.

    When domain names are slim pickens and you have money burning in your pockets, you'll opt to grab whatever you can these days and wait for others to drop into your laps (not). That's what I'm counting on.

    Take a look at the number of domains overall purchased for the last five years and you'll see that the crumbs are looking better every day.

    Short story: My neighbor bought a swamp real cheap nobody else wanted. His friend ran a dirt hauling business and after two months he was sitting pretty with little cash involved.

    Old addage - "You never pay too much for land (domains), you just buy it too soon." In the case of domains, possession is nine tenths of the law. Go ahead and buy it when the opportunity prevails. I had my chance ten years ago when they were free.

    My 2 cents worth.

    Good advise, wherstead. Except that domain names are infinitely expandable, unlike land.

    I used to be dirt poor meaning I had more land than I could afford located in three counties. Now, we only have what we need to raise our alpacas and a house in town. We're happy.

    The same applies to us with domain names. I have what I can keep up with and a few to speculate on the side. All but a few actually have relevant content or point to my sites as secondary doors.

    This is where the .biz, .us, and .info have helped. I placed myself on the first and second screens of Google.com with them where my .com is still on screen #7. It was worth the $20 for the higher visibility. Traffic has increased proportionally.

    You'll see SURI.BIZ on my personalized truck tag this coming June. Good advertising.
