    Choosing band name - avoiding legal bullshit

    I am in the process of cooking up a new band and have a few name ideas, but wanna be sure I'm safe

    Just an EXAMPLE (I'm not thinking of this particular name)
    "Tarmalune"
    https://forgottenrealms.fandom.com/wiki/Tarmalune

    It's not trademarked ackording to this search:
    TESS -- Error

    Does that freepass me from hypothetically using "Tarmalune" as a band name?? <--- again, just an example! That would be a terrible band name since "tarm" in swedish means "intestinal"


    I have a few other much better names I'm thinking of, which are from a couple of different locations in a certain PC action RPG game from 2000

    They are not taken ackording to Metal-Archives either.

    No idea about the trademark side of it but just went through this process myself so I feel your pain.

    Luckily we were able to come up with something that's not already in use

    Not sure I would call it pain, just worry

    Wouldn't Lunar Intestine be a great band name?
