After the presentation of the petition mentioned in section 31-2-401, the name proposed to be given to such city or town shall be filed by the clerk in the office of the secretary of state, to be retained there for a period of at least thirty days, and, upon application, the secretary of state, at any time after the expiration of said thirty days from said filing, shall grant a certificate stating that such name has not been given to any other municipality in this state if such is the fact. If such name has been adopted by any other municipality, as appears from the records in his office, the secretary of state shall so notify the clerk filing such name in his office, in which event no further proceedings shall be undertaken unless another petition, setting forth a different proposed name, is filed, which such different proposed name shall likewise be filed with the secretary of state. No further proceedings for a change of name shall be commenced until a certificate is received from the secretary of state attesting that the proposed name has not been adopted elsewhere in this state.
