Let’s say as an example that my full name is Robert Frankel

If I purchase the domain nkel.com and use that to create my custom e-mail:

RobertFr@nkel.com

And then use this as my personal e-mail in a professional setting (resume, contact e-mail, business card, etc…).

Do you think this would be perceived as unprofessional and silly in a negative way, and even confusing to some? Or do you think most people would understand it right away and think of it in a net positive way - perhaps a bit silly, but memorable. Don’t worry about whether the e-mail will be filtered as spam, I am curious about how it is perceived.

I am asking because I have a domain like this that I use for private personal stuff, and I wonder whether it would be a good or bad idea to use that e-mail when applying for jobs, as a small extra detail to stand out 😁
