47.11 SELECTION OF NAME.

Before execution of the certificate of incorporation of any such corporation or conduct of business under an assumed name, its proposed name or proposed assumed name shall be submitted to the commissioner of commerce, who shall compare it with those of corporations operating in the state, and if it is likely to be mistaken for any of them, or to confuse the public as to the character of its business, or is otherwise objectionable, additional names shall be submitted until a satisfactory one is selected, whereupon the commissioner shall issue a certificate of approval thereof.
