Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes, if there is no registered trademark on this name, just because it includes the name of a famous artist does not prohibit you from using it as part of your product name. IF there are no registered marks on the name you are seeking to use, which you would know since you checked the database, you are free to use the word Picasso in your product name.
