Why can't I use the proper noun "Adam" in an ad?
I am running text ads for a professional with the first name "Adam." Every ad I create with his name in it is disapproved. What can I do about this? Is there an appeal process?

If "Adam" is a trademarked term you may not be allowed to use it in you ad copies.
You could try to request an exception here:

As you are not using the word 'Adam' in reference to a trademark, you can request for a exception.
You need to write a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is what Google says
If your ad uses a trademark term in a way that's not meant in reference to that trademark, please send an email to email@example.com. Make sure to include the trademark term in question, the entire text of the ad and keywords, and the customer ID number of your AdWords account. It can also be helpful if you include a screenshot of your ad.
