When you think of the
name Lauren, do you automatically think of Ralph Lauren? I'd bet that most of the
time you would think of the girl's name. Therefore the name wouldn't be confusingly

if it is not really promoted and Ralph Lauren consistently promotes its full name
not just Lauren.
Also, if this brand was so important to the company, then why
didn't they register it as a trademark with Neulevel, and attempt to register it
themselves? It wasn't a 2B name.
