I'm trying to sign up for a professional email address on Gmail (not as good as having my own domain but better than hotmail, yahoo, isp etc) but literally every combination of my name is taken. first.last, last.first, first initial.last etc even adding the middle name/initial doesn't work. I cannot buy my own domain as I do not have a credit card. So I am left with either adding numbers (really don't want to do that and have been advised not to by recruiters) or adding something else in the email. Does anyone have any suggestions about what to use in a professional email in addition to your name if it's taken? firstname.lastname@example.org maybe or does that look silly. Anyone use numbers or something on top of their name in their gmail?
