    There are competitions and records for stone skimming so you might get an offer for that from the right person.

    Can't see any value in the others though.

    Skimming might work for a plasterer or renderer but neither of those would pay a premium for a domain above their brand in my opionion. So yeah not much value there at all.

    I know a fella with the surname Skimming but apart from that the rest seem pretty poor.
    PS - He wouldn't pay much for it at that

    There could be a famous rock band formed called Guyot one day.

    I hadn't thought about that possibility. Clearly his $20k valuation did have substance after all ;)

    Did you really just say "$20k valuation"...?

    I would be SHOCKED if they hit minimum bid at DL !

    Honestly, every single day there are hundreds of better names than those, not registered, which drop and would just cost a buyer £4-68 each.

    No, I realised it wasn't YOUR valuation, Robert.

    But I guess hope springs eternal in the human breast...
