    check the website of your county for registering a DBA (doing business as).

    The county clerk will tell you, if the name is already taken.

    Good luck

    you do not need a license in OC you can get your DBA name at your county clerks office.

    You can look up your county on the net, and usually find a link to check DBA's. I checked mine out before I applied. It saves a lot of time when you go to the clerks to get it. I was able to check locally, statewide, as well as nationally, to see if anyone else had the same name.

    O, you are asking for getting torn apart with questions about having to pay taxes...
