You’ll see both the business owner’s name (e.g. your name) and any linked business names. e.g. my company’s ABN is 71 153 842 132. If you search this on the ABN database you’ll find direct association to the company (in your case this would be you as a sole trader) and scrolling down you’ll see it links to separate business name.

If you properly register your business name with ASIC, attached to your ABN, then ultimately if you search on the ABN you will see your personal name as the ABN holder and any linked business names to that ABN.
