  2.  Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 362.421 and 362.425, any association may amend its charter to change its name or in the case of a new charter, may adopt a name, which includes the words "Savings Bank", in lieu of the words "Savings and Loan Association" or "Savings Association".  For purposes of this chapter, the term "association" shall include savings banks.  The procedure for adopting the name "savings bank" shall be as provided in section 369.059.

  3.  No person, firm, or corporation, either domestic or foreign, unless authorized to do business in this state under the provisions of sections 369.010 to 369.369 shall do business under any name or title which indicates or reasonably implies that the business is the character or kind of business carried on or transacted by an association or which is likely to lead any person to believe that the business is that of an association.  Upon application by the director of the division of finance or any association, a court of competent jurisdiction may issue an injunction to restrain any such entity from violating or continuing to violate any of the foregoing provisions of this subsection.
