Baby (Domain) Names

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Get this: a new trend of naming a baby is based upon whether or not the domain name was available or not. Is this truly for real?

Are these people serious? Yes, says friend of momlogic and founder of, Jennifer Moss. But that doesn't mean she thinks it's a good thing.


"Registering a domain name year-by-year can be costly for 18 years -- and who knows what's going to be out there when your child is of age?" she ponders. "We could never have predicted MySpace 10 years ago nor would we have reserved a MySpace user name, right? Perhaps in 18 years teens will be broadcasting from their cell phones or something! I think we can choose their names, but like a lot of things during their lives, we have to let them choose what site/service/screen name they want in the future."

She says if you do reserve a domain name for your child, be careful about what you post on it. "I reserved my daughter's domain name, but didn't ever use it as the web address contained identifiable information -- her first and last name," she says. "I think Internet sites are too open to the world and I didn't want the 'world' to see my baby, just friends and family. So I used the Family Web Pages at Babynames instead for family photos and the like."

Hey man I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to create something worth reading . I am all over the internet and I see so much useless junk that is just created for the sake of putting something fresh on their page. It takes passion to create good stuff, thanks for caring.
