Can I register a company but not trade under it? Looking to protect a company name/branding for the time being.

Hey Guys, I’m quite lost with this issue and have no idea who to talk to about it so I thought id post here.

I’m a filmmaker and I work mainly freelance in the UK film industry. I have some branding/a production company name that I would like to protect (I wont say it here, but an e.g would be Flip Coin Films) and I don’t know what my options are.
I’ve spent a decent amount of time building a website, creating a logo, making an animated version of the logo for the start of my films and business cards, and would be gutted if all that hard work and expense was for nothing.

At the moment it’s simply branding for my personal projects, as I will continue to work freelance. However in the future I would like to run my own small production company with this identity.

Is it possible to register this name to protect it? What are the costs and downsides to this?

I know a lot of you are probably US based, but id still love to know your thoughts on the matter, as I have no idea who to talk to about this.
