    I mean probably not many .names high in the rankings because they are rather random. I dont think there are any negative effects, but I could be wrong.

    No actually I cannot think of a high ranking .name site dunno if i've ever seen one. It is pretty much a bottom of the barrel extension imo, but if you have a nice generic term say "cash.name" or "my.name" they would be valuable for the domain alone and not for the indexability.

    they are pretty random and they suck. and they're expensive, but hey if it's the only thing left...

    could be worth a try i suppose
