Then on a modest budget for many folks on this list, one could buy up
and squat on the likely most popular 50,000 to 100,000 names.

So it would seem that either the names are memorable mnemonics, and thus
some much more valuable than others, or they're less valuable by being
less usable.  The $0.10 for life does not sound realistic, unless all
the names are essentially high-entropy random serial numbers.
