Is there any law to patent our name that no one cannot use this name.?

Hi

here are a lot of myths associated with the registration of common names and personal names as trademarks. Clearly it can be seen that we are surrounded by the names and they are even effectively protected. The key to protection of such mark is acquired distinctiveness which though cannot guarantee exclusive rights but gives a tough way for others to register the mark. Thus a unique surname can give a business your identity or else you have to build one.
