Your good name? -3

Uh oh! The race to snap up the last few alphabetical domain names has begun, literally, in utero. I talked about how sensible domain names are getting snapped by the second. Now hear this –

Newborn Bennett Pankow joined his four older siblings in getting his own Internet moniker. In fact, before naming his child, Mark Pankow checked to make sure "" hadn't already been claimed. "One of the criteria was, if we liked the name, the domain name had to be available," Pankow said. It was, and Pankow quickly grabbed Bennett's online identity.

I've heard about saving your child's umbilical cord blood( creepy but increasingly making sense) and starting a college fund for the newborn, but this takes the cake.

All you parents-to-be out there, beware. If you don't hurry, you might have to end up naming your kid R2D2 or C3PO.(Oops, those are already taken).
