Do I even have to answer that?

It was trademarked by Bayer as a product name back when it was used as a medicine.

From 1898 through to 1910 it was marketed as a non-addictive morphine substitute and cough medicine for children. Bayer marketed heroin as a cure for morphine addiction before it was discovered that heroin is converted to morphine when matabolized in the liver. The company was somewhat embarrassed by this new finding and it became a historical blunder for Bayer.[6] As with aspirin, Bayer lost some of its trademark rights to heroin following World War I.

Per Wikipedia, I stand corrected.
