In my observations, names usually don't have articles like the, a, an. For example: Stack Exchange (not The Stack Exchange); Facebook, (not The Facebook). However:
- There are cases when the name really have the "the", but people drop it. For example, people refers to the newspaper The New York Times as New York Times
- There are cases when there is no "the" in the names, but people add it. For example, people refers to the newspaper Daily Star as The Daily Star
I wonder if there is any rule for this? I suppose that with time, the article will gradually be dropped. So if it isn't, then probably there is a stronger reason that it sticks to the name. What would that reason be?
Also, what about names that consist only regular words, like house, book, etc? Since it can be confused with the actual object, would it's more natural to have "the" in the name? Would they say:
- I pick a book from Book
- I pick a book from The Book
