How important is it to have a unique farm name?
We're just starting out, and we found a name that we feel really represents us and fits really well. We spent a long time trying to create a name that worked. Problem is, when we used google to see if it was free, there is already another farm using it.
The other farm raises horses and labs (neither of which will we ever raise) and is on the opposite side of the country from us. They also put a space, whereas ours is one word.
Do you think it's ok to go ahead and use it, since we created it before we ever heard of them? Do you think there would be any legal issues? Would you still use a name that you had thought up, then found somebody else was already using?
