Q: How do i get my artist name trademarked
A: A performer may apply for federal registration of his/her stage name, if it is not confusingly similar to another performer who has used the name earlier in time. The application would be made for entertainment services, and could also be supplemented by registrations for use on fan merchandise. Contact a qualified trademark attorney to assess the matter and recommend how to proceed.
Erik Špila agrees with this answer
If you want to trademark your artist name in European union, it is possible too. There are many such trademarks already registered here.
First I recommend trademark search for possible conflicting trademarks and then you can use legal practitioner in EU to file EU trademark on your behalf. The EUTM covers all 28 member states.
