    Is name "Adreso" suitable for a website domain?

    Is name "Adreso" suitable for a website domain? Would spelling be a problem or not? Would you be confused by single "d" and "s" letters instead of double letters (as in "address")? Thanks for help.

    .[/QUOTE]Welcome to the forum, andy.

    If you are not concerned about the way people pronounce it, you can call your website what you want, and spell the name how you want. I would not think of 'address' if I sae a site called 'Adreso'.

    Thank you very much for reply.

    If not "address", then what comes to your mind first when you read or hear "adreso"?

    Honestly? Nothing.

    If I visit a website for some reason, I may be interested enough in a strange-sounding name to try to try to work out why it has been used, but generally I accept things for what they are.

    My own website is 'gramorak'. I suppose I hope that visitors will realise that I had in mind 'grammar-anorak' when I thought of it, but I suspect many won't. Many will not even know this particular sense of 'anorak': Anorak (slang) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    * Not a teacher

    At first sight, I would look it up in a Spanish dictionary because I have no idea what that means (I still don't, I haven't found it). You can give us a brief description of your website and tell us on what audience it is targeted. If you want it to be worldwide, not only for Spanish(?) audience, I recommend you to use an English name.

    5jj, thank you for unfolding the riddle behind "grammorak". Also, thank you for teaching me a new word.

    Do you mean adreso.com? If so, I can't see a problem with that.

    Thank you very much for your responses. Adreso is not a spanish word. It means address in esperanto.
