Can You Trademark a Church Name?
It’s definitely possible to trademark the name of a church. The United States Patent and Trademark Office will grant trademark protection to the names, logos and slogans associated with religious or charitable services. You may also trademark the logo that you use to represent the church on any printed materials, as it is considered to be a trademark that distinguishes your church from any other competing churches.
You should trademark your church’s name in order to prevent any other organization or company from using a similar name to identify their products or services. If your church’s name is not trademarked, then there is a chance that another organization will utilize the name to mislead the general public. A nefarious group could use the good name and reputation of your church without your permission. Consider trademarking your church name in order to avoid the misuse of your church’s name and identity.
