    I want to make email addy on my Résumé look more professional (currently [email protected] with rocky being my hypothetical first name). Even though I'm still in college, I want to buy a domain because it seems brag worthy and it’s cheap.

    Here is where I'm stuck. Now say, my name is Rocky Mickremanayake. No middle name. No nickname.

    .eu is fine here in the UK although I guess it isn't too bad if I head out to Asia for work. I want a short, smart and professional email address – Help me choose:


    @mickremanayake.com (this is a joke, i mean look how long it is! im better off with my free live.com one)
    @rocky.eu (probably [email protected], although this is quite impersonal)
    @rockym.eu
    @rockym.net
    @rocky85.com
    @rocky.vc
    @rocky.tv
    @mrocky.com

    or any other suggestion?

    Never ever post email address or one you may want to use because spammers will pick them up and you know that means lots of spam.

    Thank you but I know that already, I've replaced my real name with Rocky. So any suggestions?

    Well, generally [email protected] is acceptable...unless you have a business, I wouldn't bother with a domain name, because then your email would be so redundant as to seem fake. Maybe not. I don't know how others would react, but I know that I personally would wonder if it was a real address, and may not risk trying it out to see. Just a thought. Maybe someone more 'tech-ish' than me would have a better idea.

    Another thing, if I were an employer, the professional-ism of the email address would probably be so far down the list of priorities as to be pretty much a non-issue unless you had an email like [email protected]. But, I'm not an employer, so maybe someone with that experience would say differently.
