In CA, if you file the paperwork under your name then your license will be under your name and will look something like " last name FCC".

When I applied for my license I went through the process of filing for my DBA (doing business as) business name first and submitted a copy of my official approval from the state along with my application. My licence reads "last name FCC AKA business name"

Our licencing office doesn't exactly promote getting a business name, but we can do it. We just have to apply for the business name officially and submit the approval.
I'm sure if you file for an official DBA you can have your license changed to reflect your DBA. Without an official DBA you can only operate under the name on your license.
