    I've picked my company name and I was about to make my business cards and my wife is concerned about me getting in trouble for using someone else's business name. I'm new at this and really have no clue about the rules of a company name. Please give me some advice on how I should proceed.

    You are going to want to register your business name with the state of Alabama. It's called a DBA. Doing Business As, and your wife is correct, you will need to see if the name you have selected is already taken.
    This is the number i would call:
    334-242-1170 which is general contact info. Tell them you want to register your business name, and they will tell you what you need to do.

    Here is a link to help you.
