The Secretary of State shall authorize use of the name applied for if the other corporation files with the Secretary of State articles of amendment to its articles of incorporation changing its name to a name that is distinguishable upon the records of the Secretary of State from the name of the applying corporation.

(d) A foreign corporation may use the name (including the fictitious name) of another domestic or foreign corporation whether for profit or not for profit that is used in this state if the other corporation is incorporated or authorized to transact business in this state and:
