Okay so I’m like watching the Late Show here in Ireland one evening, and there’s an interview with a young, talented fashion designer who’s making progress.

The conversation turns to thoughts about Kim Kardashian.

The designer asks a question about her: “What does Kim Kardashian actually do?”.

My own brain started moving, which really never happens during the Late Show here in Ireland.

And I thought about Kim Kardashian and how humongously successful and famous she is. Isn’t she a phenomenon? She’s probably the Queen of the entire celebrity culture. There’s no need for a king with Kim in town.

So, she provides seemingly endless entertainment, bits and bytes about this, that or the other. We lap it up. She could be more famous then even the Beatles. It’s just so addictive and it’s The American Dream.

That’s what Kim Kardashian does.

But then I thought about something else about her success story. What are all the elements of her success? Sure, there’s her looks and the ‘American Dream’ thing.

And the thought struck me: hasn’t she truly also got an amazing … name?

Think about it. The “Kim” suggests the friendly girl next door we can all relate to. The “Kardashian” suggests strongly the exotic we all are drawn to. The “double K” helps the name trip off the tongue.

Remember the first time you heard about her. And then said her name to yourself. Am I alone when I thought to myself: “Yes, I can say her name!”.

I’d contend her amazing name is a massive part of her success story – and knowing the power of a great name we ask: could Kim Kardashian play the domain game?

So the next time someone is telling you don’t need to spend $500-$3,000 on a great domain for your business or startup, don’t tell them about the success of, and all the top websites built on great domains – tell them about the success of Kim Kardashian and see what they say!
