Glossary of Printing Terms:
.name

A generic top-level domain (gTLD) intended for the use of individuals’ real names, nicknames, screen names, pseudonyms or other personal names.

It was delegated to Global Name Registry in 2001, although it did not become fully operational until January 2002.

Domains can be registered on the second level (foo.name) and the third level (foo.bar.name).

It is also possible to register an e-mail address on the form foo@bar.name together with, or instead of, the domain foo.bar.name.

Such an e-mail address is a forwarding account, and requires another e-mail address to be delivered to.

When a domain is registered on the third level (foo.bar.name), the second level (bar.name in this case) is shared, and may not be registered.

Further third level objects like baz.bar.name or bar@bar.name may be registered.

Other second level domains like foobar.name remain unaffected.
