1) I remember I've usually read to better choose the solution with fore- and last name in one word if you're going to use your name as a domain name.
But I couldn't find any solid sounding reason. Is there any?
2) I also consider the solution with the dot, so the domain could be open for other family members.
But then - could that be a disadvantage SEO/SERP wise?
Two questions on one day - sorry mates, I know, I owe you a beer!
