Name.com announces the launch of a names-based encyclopedia at wiki.name.com.

All names are dynamic and rich with meaning. For example, think about a domain name: it's a simple placeholder that represents a unique starting point on the Internet.

Name.com, the ICANN-accredited domain registrar headquartered here, announced today the launch of a unique names-based encyclopedia at wiki.name.com.

Wiki.name.com, under development by Name.com, LLC since February 2008, aspires to become "the" name encyclopedia on the Internet. Unlike other online name resources, the wiki boasts extensive information categories for each name, including etymology, origin, popularity, facts, similar names and famous persons. Name enthusiasts, including expectant parents and closet name nerds, will be able to relish in the fascinating connotations, history and affiliations of each name.

"I imagine having an article for every name on the planet," says Name.com, LLC founder and CEO Bill Mushkin. "All names are dynamic and rich with meaning. For example, think about a domain name: it's a simple placeholder that represents a unique starting point on the Internet."

Name.com, an innovative and young company, is the first registrar to create a wiki site. By developing the site on MediaWiki software, Name.com offers interactive access for Internet users to learn and contribute. The content on wiki.name.com will thus be responsive to trends, providing diverse collaborative information and enjoying sustainable growth.

Name.com is a privately held ICANN accredited registrar offering over 50 different gTLD and ccTLD extensions as well as aftermarket domain brokerage, brand management and consulting services. Name.com is headquartered at 125 Rampart Way, Suite 300 Denver, CO 80230. The telephone number is 720-249-2374.
