Question

I want to open a Barbershop but the name I want is taken?

I want to open a barbershop is California but the name I want is taken. It already exists in North Carolina. Could I still open one under that name or can I be sued? The name I want is E&M Barber

My research says you can name your business the same name, since it's in a different state, and E&M Barber in North Carolina doesn't appear to be trademarked. It could become an issue if you wanted to be trademarked, but I highly doubt that is the case, either. You're not looking to become McDonald's or anything.
