Woman Sells Her Name On EBay For $15K

"SEYMOUR, Tenn. -- A mother of five put her name up for bid on eBay and got an offer. Terri Iligan, 33, sold her name to Internet site Golden Palace Casino, and she will officially be named goldenpalace.com once the legal work is complete.


The casino paid $15,199 for the name.

Iligan said she got the idea when she found out how much it would cost to send one of her children, ages 4 to 10, to a golf school Tiger Woods attended.

'To my kids and to my husband, I will always be Terri. My husband is real supportive,' she told WATE-TV in Knoxville. 'He thinks it's funny. As long as they get to call me mom, they don't care.'"
