The New York Post published an article about a research study sponsored by GoDaddy concerning baby names and corresponding domain names. From the NYP article this morning:
“According to the research, as many as one in five (20 percent) millennial parents said they changed or seriously considered changing their baby’s name based on what domain names were free at the time.”
This figure seems surprisingly high to me.
When my wife and I discussed baby names, I don’t recall thinking much about the corresponding domain names. I was able to buy one exact match domain name but not the second. I feel a bit badly about the second, but perhaps I will have the chance to buy it at some point in the future before he would want it. If not, I am sure he can find something suitable.
Would you change or consider changing your baby’s name (I presume before he or she was born) based on domain name availability? Share in the poll below:
