whats anyone reckon then?
Hand it over by royal command?
I remember it going last year for not a lot of money, which I was very surprised at.
I would estimate £800-£2k imho.
Id like to hope it will make you a good profit on your initial investment but I think it could be a bit of a waiting game rather than a quick sale.
Name domains tend to work in the same way as very good personal number plates. If you find someone with the same name and they are loaded then the sky is the limit!!
The only problem I see is that not only is it a Female name but it is also a name that has many different shortened versions.
Will have to show them somewhere
Can we use this a post for someone knowledgeable to break it down and explain to me exactly where a christian name such as this gets its value?

About buying some first names, almost ALL of them was early to late x,xxx-xx,xxx which is way over in my opinion.
I mean firstname.lastname@example.org as an email is kinda yuck, but saying elizabeth.co.uk if its your business name is cool.
I agree - email@example.com is clunky, firstname.lastname@example.org would be nicer.
I would say upto just north of a grand reseller perhaps on a good day, end user £5-10k and you will be waiting a while
If I had a first name domain e.g. 'Joseph' I would not use joe@ joseph_dot_co_dot_uk but would rather use mail@ joseph_dot_co_dot_uk
Separate names with a comma.
