Can you sue someone for using your name without permission?
Depends on the use. If they titled a character in a novel John Smith and you are John Smith, then probably no. If they used your name to get a credit card and charge it up, then yes. If you are a celebrity or for some other reason your name in-and-of-itself has value, then probably. Then again, at least in the US, you can sue anyone for anything.
