If I am not a licensed funeral director, can my name be used for advertising purposes in connection with a licensed establishment?

No. In accordance with the law, Tenn. Code Ann. 62-5-314 states:

Use of names of unregistered persons restricted. The names of any living person who has not been licensed, as herein provided, shall not be shown or displayed upon any funeral establishment, or used alone, in as part of, or in connection, association, combination or together with the name or title of any person, firm, corporation, or other form of enterprise engaged in undertaking or embalming, or on any card, sign, stationery or other printed or written instrument or device, or in any announcement of advertisement, or in any manner so as to give or tend to give the impression that such person is licensed or entitled to practice either as a funeral director or embalmer.
