Why red@rrroy.com

For all you non Afrikaners, rooi (pronounced roy) means red. For example, Red Bush Tea is Rooibos Tee in Afrikaans. Although the bushes themselves are green, once fermented the leaves turn a rich dark red colour.

 

Rooibos grows only in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.

And unfortunately roy.com and rroy.com had already been registered and even more annoyingly remain unused.

Sturgeon

And I’ve never been quite happy with the name Roy which was chosen because when caught, a sturgeon becomes a royal fish and the personal property of the monarch of the United Kingdom. Which is ironic because I’m a republican.
