The Beckhams Trademark their daughter’s name “Harper Beckham”
So can you use your personal name as your business name?
Your birthright to a name does not actually provide a commercial right to use it as a trademark.
The Beckham’s Trademark Lawyers recently registered their daughter’s name “Harper Beckham” as a trademark in Europe. They covered entertainment services, and a variety of other goods, such as bleaches, printed matter, leather, umbrellas, perfume, clothing, toys, dolls, music and entertainment.
Their Trademark Lawyers also registered as Trademarks her older siblings names: Cruz, 12, Romeo, 14, and Brooklyn.
So you should seek to trademark your name as soon as possible in order to prevent a person with the same name offering your goods and services.
