If you file a Chapter 7 on a corporation, can you still do business after discharge under that same company name?

Question Details: Lets say it was Joe Blow, Inc. and I filed Chapter 7, mainly to discharge major bank debt that I couldn't pay. The company name was a brand name and there are no records on the internet of the filing and other than the banks nobody really knows of the bankruptcy. I have been in business for 20 years before the filing and am starting up again. This is also a family name that was not tarnished. Can I still do business under it? like Joe Blow or even Joe Blow, Inc. again?
