If the name of a foreign entity or individual is substantially identical to another name in the business registry, the person shall adopt a fictitious name that is not substantially identical and deliver to the director for filing a copy of a certificate of registration of a trade name and use that name in its statement and when it does business in the State as a commercial registered agent.
