The Register of Deeds handles filings for sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations (doing business under an assumed name), and limited liability companies (LLCs) doing business under an assumed name. You must conduct a search to find out whether someone is already doing business under the name you want, and you can download forms you might need.
