Lets say I have a registered limited company called ABC Limited. I have a trading name called ABC Events.

Technically speaking the name ABC Events is not registered at the companies house so could someone else come by and register that name as a limited company and prevent me from using it?

Are there any ways I can protect against this without registering ABC Events and keeping it dormant as that would kind of defeat the purpose of using it as a trading name in the first place?

I am trading in the UK.
