The game of the name

I was interested to read the item 'What's in a name? Plenty, if you call yourself an architect', (AJ 27.5.99). Companies House issued a booklet, Notes for guidance on choosing a company name, in March 1993.

Appendix C points out that the use of certain words might constitute a criminal offence. Some of the words mentioned are architect; credit union; vet; dentist; pharmacy; bank; banker; banking; deposit; Red Cross; Anzac; insurance broker; chiropodist; dietitian; medical occupational therapist; lab- oratory technician; physio-therapist; radiographer; rem- medial; patent office; patent agent; building society.
