Trademarks don't have to be 100% original afaik.

They should be 1% original at least.

I'm completely against IP, including trademarks, but assuming they're going to exist then unoriginal trademarks would have to be allowed purely on the basis that most businesses have names made up of existing english language words and phrases.

The point of a trademark isn't that you created it, it's to assign you a unique identifier so customers can tell you apart from the competition. Kinda like the way you can register URLs without inventing the name.
