    I would also add that the more unique your name, the less time you will spend worrying about SEO.

    what everyone has said is absolutely true, i just wanted to add a bit of what i have seen by my own eyes regards same names.

    I went to Uganda recently and saw a store called “Woolworths” same exact spelling as the woolies/woolworths here in aus. The only difference it was a clothing store unlike here.

    So if u really love the name that much and u only wanna trade in aus then probably go for it. just dont relate yourself to the US company.

    Woollies probably doesn’t care much about a clothing store in Uganda. A US company who markets to Australia may care about a similar business in Australia who adopts its name…
