    You can search at this online database for registered names and reserved names:

    copyright and patent generally have nothing to do with "names". Trademarks and trade names can be closely linked, depending upon how the company has used its name or registered its trademarks.

    You can check PH trademarks here:

    Do as "bcnu" says.

    When you find a trademarked/ patented/ copyrighted name you like the make a small change & use that for yours. That is quite common here in the Philippines.

    Or you can ask for help on a law firm that are specialized in intellectual property.
