I own akaemi.com. Which is my name. As a domain name. And I love it!
Admittedly, I didn’t come up with the idea to buy akaemi.com. That genius actually lies with my husband. akaemi.com was born right before last Christmas – and it’s the best thing I’ve ever gotten, right up there tied with a surprise weekend trip to Hershey, PA. (Again, the genius of my husband.)
Also, akaemi.com would not have been possible without the incredible foresight of my mother. My name is actually based on the Japanese name, Akemi. And if you go to akemi.com – you get redirected to some german site that manufactures adhesives. Yeah. German adhesives. My mother threw in the extra ‘a’ in my name, in an attempt to westernize it – so that it would be easier for people to pronounce upon first reading it. That seems to have only worked for about 10 people, but one benefit of the extra a is that I have a unique, domain-nameable, name. And that, is frickin’ awesome.
