A: Assuming you are asking whether you can trademark this word, that depends on a few details. Are you using it with any other words? Do you want to trademark just the word or a stylized version of the word? And what goods or services do you want to trademark it for? (every trademark is filed in one or more classes of goods/services). You should contact a qualified trademark attorney directly (the questions on this forum are anonymous) to discuss these particulars, and they can conduct a preliminary search to give you an idea of whether you are likely to be successful with a trademark application.

A: No, words themselves are not available for purchase, as they are part of the public domain and cannot be owned or restricted. However, certain wordmarks or trademarks may be registered and protected in specific contexts and industries.
