Hello and welcome,

 

Google Adwords has framed a Trademark related policy which varies from region to region and there are different elements to see how trademark can be used and whether there are some violations or not. I would encourage you to read this policy for  more insights:- http://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=6118

 

There's Trademark Complaint Form also available which can filled and sent across to Adwords support for further investigation:

Hope that helps!

Hello;

In addition to Pankaj answer - assuming that your name is a trade-name. If not, nothing much to do from Google's side

 

Read the following case;
