Mount Q is an unknown quantity at this point
Anglicized spelling of Tibetan name for Mt. Everest

I have several domain names related to the English interpretation of the Tibetan name for Mt. Everest, "Mount Qomolangma". In short, they aren't "true" IDN-style domain names with non-Western style lettering, but simply the anglicized spelling of Chinese and Tibetan names.

What would be the best way for me to approach someone with a domain name of, say, "mountqomolangma.com" (Mt. Qomolangma)?

Re: Anglicized spelling of Tibetan name for Mt. Everest

I'm unsure if you can just stick a 'mount' in front of this .. I'm *fairly sure* Chomolungma / Qomolangma is the full name as it stands?

*spelling*

Actually, Qomolangma is the entire REGION, but the mountain is called Mount Qomolangma.

Re: Anglicized spelling of Tibetan name for Mt. Everest

First question you should ask yourself is - who uses this word? If it is a translit into English, it is in commage usage by any group of people? If not, its basically worthless. Only 69,000 entries returned for "Chomolungma" in Google. Not great, but worth investigating.

And yeah, these are ASCII domains, not IDNs
