I think your website will need to be modified so you can do business and present yourself under the new name. You may even need a new domain name if the old domain name is similar to the business name. I can't see another alternative. It may be easiest to start with a new domain name and a new website, though you can probably salvage much of the content from your old website.

If you're basically changing one name for another, then changing the website text is easy.
If you're changing images, then it's a little bit harder (especially if you didn't create the graphics).
And changing domain names is easy, especially since no one knows you by your original name.

If you can't use the first name, I would totally change the web site now to the new name. Using the name that already exists is inviting trouble form the competitor who is using that name.

why didn't you search the domain name availability first? Definately chamge the website and branded images to the new name.

You definitely need to use the new name for the domain name for the business. If you have already advertised the original name, simply redirect the original domain name to your new website. It's called a 301 redirect and won't affect your SEO on the new website.
As others have stated, updating the existing website to reflect the new business name shouldn't be that difficult.
