Answer:

Goldenpalace.com, the online casino, does weird things to get publicity (possibly since its fairly hard to get any sort of publicity at all for a web-based gambling joint). These were some of them.

  1. Species of monkey which is now named Goldenpalace.com
  2. A woman who had the name tattooed on her forehead
  3. A woman who changed her name to Goldenpalace.com
  4. Brangelina ultrasound that they com bought, and an unrelated baby who was named Goldenpalace.com

And so on and so forth.

    The GoldenPalace.com Monkey. It was discovered in western Bolivia\\\\\\\’s Madidi National Park in 2004 by the Wildlife Conservation Society. Rather than choosing a name themselves, they auctioned off the naming rights to raise funds for a nonprofit organization. GoldenPalace.com(an online casino, well-known for its winning Internet auctions, mostly for bizarre items) one of over a dozen bidders, paid US$ 650,000 to have the species named after them.

    …Dont know the rest but i guess all takes irts name from various sites………

    Is this question a well calculated publicity stunt by GoldenPalace.com?

    1. No clue.
    2 & 3. People selling off their names and forehead space to Goldenpalace.com
    4. Angelina Jolie\’s kid Shiloh. Somebody had registered a domain in her name before Brangelina could and that finally had to be bought out.

    So, I guess the connect is Domain name trading/Investment
