I wasn't aware that they treated it any differently from any other
domain.  Hold on one ...

"Uniquely for a gTLD, .name domains are only issued at the third level
 and therefore have two dots. This extra dot enables you to share your
 family name with thousands of others, vastly increasing your chance of
 using your full name as your web address."

I had not previously been aware of this.  I am now enlightened.  And of
course, this explained why I could not find, but can
find  ;->  It looks like he could have chosen to
register ... I suppose that makes more sense for
names like, were I to use my paternal ancestors'
naming scheme.
