How to stop other people from taking my business name?
What do you mean by "register" your business name? If you get a business license locally, or even incorporate, the business name is only protected within that state. No one else in the state can use the name, but anyone else in the country can, and even in the world. You would have to file a trademark, and have it protected nationally, then also file a worldwide trademark, and have a lawyer to be able to enforce it. You will need A LOT of money.

They would not be able to use the name if they spelled it exactly the same. By registering your chosen name, logs it into records and prevents it from being registered again by someone else. One should register a name before opening the business,so as not to create confusion.
