Hi,
My wedding photography website is live patrickdinneen.ie (posted about it previously here).
However, I'm thinking/fearing that people may not remember my name or spell it correctly-
Patrick Dinneen
So I've also purchased PatrickDineen.ie (1 n, the more common spelling) and patrickd.ie

Which would you recommend to use on business cards? I think patrickd is catchy, easy to remember but someone else says it sounds like a dj...
Thanks,
Patrick.
Cheers,
Pa

I would consider a more generic name maybe something based on where you live

Something like Island Wedding Photography or Ireland Wedding Photography something along those lines, these are probably already taken .

I would spell it as it should be spelt, otherwise you potentially cause even more confusion.
Best regards, John

Honest opinion, you're asking for trouble with a website url of any variation on patrickdinneen.ie
You don't want to lose people because they can't find you.

Having said that, most will start searching with a google search like wedding photography so in a lot of ways the exact address may not be that important anyway, as long as you're coming up in results lists near the top, and have good google reviews.

PDPhotography.com seems a darn site easier to remember and get right. PDphotographY even rhymes a bit

Key words in your first page will help greatly with searches, like wedding, weddings, wedding photographer, photography, events, geographic coverage and so on plus any special or unique attributes.
