Hi Swacd,
Shouldn't be any problem with printing just the name, as copyright does not apply to real names. And it would appear that 'Rod Stewart' has not been registered as a trade mark in either the UK or Europe, so that removes another potential problem.

Hi Swacd,
You can check using the IPO website. Just type the text you want to check in the 'search words' box. You don't need to worry about selecting any classes.
