"Trademark Violation" for use of my own name?

My ad was disapproved for use of my own name.  How can I not be allowed to advertise my own services under my own normal last name? My last name is Perez, not Nabisco.

Hi Alicia and welcome to the Community.


Well, it really depends upon which Alicia Perez you are.  At least one AP is quite well known and it is like to be for her name that the "trademark" violation has been made.  If you're that AP, then you should just be able to contact AdWords and explain this and you should have no problems getting your Ads approved.  If you're not "that" AP, you may have more difficulty depending upon the nature of the Ads themselves.
