I think this is why the business names register has become national rather than statewide. The internet has made the world a smaller place and it must be confusing to authorities when there is more than one business with the same name.

I’m sorry to say but this is probably something you should have researched as soon as you decided upon a name before making any plans around the business name. And even then, when registering the business name, have 1 or 2 backup names just in case. I know that I’ve had to have back up options in case I couldn’t have my first choice.

Is there a way to do a variation of it perhaps?
