Which domain for personal portfolio?

    Hi guys

    In the process of designing my portfolio website but I'm stuck on a domain choice.

    The portfolio will have quite varied work as I'm doing "Creative Digital Media" at univeristy so I touch on web/print/multimedia/video/photography - basically all digital media.

    Seeing as its a personal portfolio I want to include my name but "" is taken. :( I have two options really:

    1. (almost but with "M" in the middle for my middle name)
    I'm concerned that my surname is a bit odd and not the easiest to spell which can be mixed up with "davis" but I'd like to use my name to keep it personal.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I'd go for the second, purely because it would help with keyword searches in google

    From an SEO and clarity point of view, I'd definitely go with the second option. benmdavies is just too odd looking and I reckon if you told people the URL they would probably forget the m.

    2nd one is easier to say, read, and remember.

    second one.

    Better for SEO and rolls off the tongue better.

    Benmdavies looks more of a typo tbh.

    I agree, second one is the better one of the two.I could actually remember that instead of faffing about to type the first one right!

    I don't know whether you have already bought it? However the domain is already registered.
