A fanciful mark, also known as a coined mark, is a type of trademark that is highly distinctive and provides a strong level of protection. It is considered the most unique and creative type of mark.

A fanciful mark is a term or symbol that has been invented or created solely for the purpose of functioning as a trademark. It has no dictionary or known meaning prior to its use as a brand identifier. Fanciful marks are typically coined words, combination of letters, or unique designs that have no connection to the goods or services they represent.
