Can I Trademark My Own Name?

Yes, you can trademark your own name. If your name is emblematic of your brand, products, or services, it will be legally beneficial for you to register a trademark for it.

This information was provided by our founding attorney, Xavier Morales, Esq. 

Names which represent a business entity need the protection of a trademark to ensure control and defense of your intellectual property.

The same trademark laws apply to personal names as company names—they are fundamentally one in the same. As such, it makes sense that you cannot trademark a celebrity name, such as "Britney Spears," whether or not it is a shared personal name.
