There are plenty of the newer gTLDs (generic Top Level Domain names Generic top-level domain - Wikipedia[^] ) available as the final suffix to your personal domain part (.xxx anyone).

However, be aware that many organisations are not yet fully supporting them, so you can get into a trap where you cannot use your preferred email address with that organisation.

e.g. my ISP will use my personal email domain to send marketing emails, but refuses to send billing and support emails to the same email address, so ultimately I have a series of fall back email addresses (I'm in the fortunate position to have a free alumni address, as well as the ISP's own provided email)

So if you go with a newer gTLD domain, it will mostly work, but at some point, someone won't be able to cope with something so new as your preferred email address.
