You cannot patent the name since patents are for inventions. You can trademark the name by filing a trademark application in the country of your operation. If in US, you can visit www.trademarkia.com and file a trademark application for as low as $159. If in India, you can email me at abhishek@rajpatent.com. I can assist you.

Hi,

Is it OK to put the trademark symbol on my actual logo instead of beside it?
