Legal Question in Business Law in Illinois

I am self employed and for the name of my business I used my middle name. A guy that I took on the job with me was hurt and sued me. I filed bankruptcy and it cleared me from the liability. I want to start over in the same business using the same name. Can I?

infringe on other names in the jurisdiction conducting similar business, there should

be no legal objection to your choice because of bankruptcy discharge.
