POSSIBLE ISSUES THAT MAY ARISE IF YOUR BRAND NAME IS SIMILAR TO OTHERS
If a name that is similar to yours is already being used by someone else or is being used in the USPTO database, then your applications for trademark registration have a greater chance of being denied. Even though the names are not the same, having names that are nearly identical to one another can cause confusion among customers. As a result, you run the risk of losing a potential customer. Other sectors which are very important to your brand like sellers, government bodies and marketing agencies might also face confusion due to this which will be detrimental to your brand.
