    Am I making a domain name mistake?

    I am wondering if I am making a mistake. I have a great idea for a cartoon brand. I was going to register the two domain names www.thenamenam.com and wwwnamename.com No, namename.com is NOT the real name. Anyway, today I registered www.THEnamename.com. I found out someone else registered the other name www.namename.com in February. Oh well. My question is, would it be a mistake to create a brand/website that is so close to the other domain name? I have no idea what the other website is about. It's not up yet.
    I appreciate your input.

    But the domain name is a title name.

    If they're also using that as a trademark and, say, you want to make yours arguably riding on that, yes.

    Keywords having domains are very best in the industry if you want to optimize your website for search engines. Matt Cutt's in a statement cleared that there is no matter which extension you are using for your business.
