Iirc Hover is like NameCheap in that regard.

Ok, sounds like namecheap is the way to go.  Now I just need to decide if it $10/year for 20 years is worth so my kids can have a cool web address.

Do kids even use email anymore? That's the real question.

My thought is not just email but maybe personal webpages will be the norm by then?  Or maybe they'll want a professional site for some reason.

Unfortunately, my first kids name is DJ Danger, DJ are initials because he's named after his grand fathers, and Danger is his middle name.  We'll have to wait for someone to die to get those addresses.

You'll at least be able to give him a good subdomain.

Probably not. What seems cool now can, almost overnight, become silly, childish and embarrassing. My kids loved their Panda and Barney email addresses, until they replaced them with Spice Girls and Blink 182, and those didn't last long either.
and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.

To be fair, by cool I just mean easy to remember and something associated with their actual names.

Got it. I was also going to warn against parents deciding for their kids what was "cool," but that's not what you're doing... right?
