The domain name "name" is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. .NAME domain is meant for individuals. That extends to real and fictional personas. Although there are no restrictions for registration of a .NAME,  but registrations can be challenged if not by or on behalf of individual with name similar to that of domain, or fictional character in which registrant has rights.

.NAME domain names can only contain alphabets a to z, numbers 1 to 9, dot (.) and hyphen (-).
Certain names are reserved by the Registry and Registration of such names is blocked. These include any name that may be deemed as a common surname e.g., metelev, putyatin, simacek, etc. The list of reserved names is currently not publicly available.

A particular name will not be available for Registration, if a Third level domain name is already registered with this name at the Second level.
When you register a .NAME domain name, you have to wait for 5 days before you can update the Registrant contact details.
