I’ve been enjoying the stories of how people chose their domain names.

I got my first domain less than a week ago but I agonized over the name for ages.  In the end, I was influenced by the idea that your domain is a bit like your email address or home address (I was introduced to domains by the friendly IndieWeb community) so I went with something that was close to my own name.

I often go by the nickname “Nell”.  I’m Eleanor Katharine and my middle name comes from my Granny Kit who died when I was 3 and who I have always wished I could have known.  Plus, well, Kat = critters.  Critters are fun and it all rolled off the tongue…
