How to patent a name

Unfortunately, patents protect a process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, not so much names.  Additionally, a design patent protects any novel and nonobvious ornamental characteristics of an article, such as configuration or shape.

For the protection of a name, you’d want to look into trademarks or copyrights!
