   You are correct, it is quite difficult to find good names in English - at least those good names which come to our minds. On the other hand, I am surprised to see that there are still some interesting names available in other languages - don't forget there are some other languages in the world, including some spoken by dozens of millions of people. While I agree that English is the main language on the Internet, if you consider .info in the long term, you should also be aware of the potential of those other languages.
I precise that I am NOT a speculator myself, I am interested in domain names with a future use in mind, but if I had been a speculator, I would have invested on a number of non English names as well, and the pool of those is not yet entirely exhausted (although many of the good ones are gone too in German, French or Spanish).
