1º.- The use of only one word for a company name could cause problems, as there is a likelihood of a similarity with other previously registered companies, so we suggest you use more than one word.
2º.- Do not use generic or accessorial terms in their various genders (masculine or feminine) or numbers (singular or plural), because they lack of any distinguishing effect. Neither do the derivatives, adjectives and substantives of the generic terms included in the annexed list. We suggest you consult the list of generic termswhich is included.
3º.- To add a number to the name applied for lacks of any distinguishing effect, if it is not accompanied by a meaningful term, such as "number of street" or "founded in", etc.
4º.- The names of regions, provinces, cities and villages added to a company name lack a distinguishing effect.
5º.- The inclusion of a well-known trade mark in the application can result in the denial of a company name.
6º.- Domain names ended in: ' .es, .com, .net and .cat' have a different sphere of action from that of company names, so they must not be included in a company name application.
7º.- Trying to differentiate a requested name from another existing one, by using letters alone, or combined with numbers, which have not a specific meaning, is not sufficient to obtain a name.
8º.- The inclusion of an abbreviation in a company name is illegal.
9º.- When the requested name is a translation(into Spanish or another foreign language) /strong> of a name already included in the Register, they would be identical.
10º.- Similar pronunciation between the requested name and another previously registered name, even when their meaning is different, will be an obstacle for the approval of the requested name.
11º.- Changing the order of the words is not sufficient to distinguish between a requested name and an existing name.
12º.- Company name and trade mark have different functions; whereas the name identifies the company as a legal entity, thetrade mark is used inpublicity, customer relations, identification of merchandise, etc.
