Before you try to trademark your first name as a brand, you might want to do some research on other very popular celebrities that share it, especially world renowned pop singers. Kylie Jenner has filed a trademark claim on her first name, which is not great news for international pop star Kylie Minogue, who named a recent album Kylie, and generally uses her first name in a number of different ways for her career. In a lawsuit to stop the trademark, Minogue's attorneys pull no punches, and call Jenner a "secondary reality TV personality," ignoring the fashionista's other accomplishments.
Aside from calling Kylie Jenner a "secondary" figure in the outlet from which most of us know her, the lawsuit also points out that "photographic exhibitionism and controversial posts" on social media have received criticism "from the Disability Rights and African-American communities" in the past, which is true.
Basically, Minogue is suing Jenner's trademark claim because it could confuse the public, with the Australian singer fearing having links to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians brand. Also, Minogue's own brand would be affected, especially since she's mostly known by her first name.
Apparently, Jenner has also filed the trademark in the entertainment industry, which is clearly in direct conflict with Minogue, according to UPROXX.

According to WorldIPreview.com, the "Can't Get You Outta My Head" singer "owns trademarks for the terms 'Kylie Minogue darling', 'Lucky - the Kylie Minogue musical' and 'Kylie Minogue.'"
