In WI they check the whole state when you register - I had to change my name because a co 50 miles away was too similar. But the benefit is, nobody can get a name very similar to mine.

Could prevent people from riding your coattails.

Trademarking your name is considerably more expensive, but gives you more protection. I haven't done this. You'll be writing a 4-fig check for that.
