Is my personal name visible using a Paypal business account?

I need some privacy! I recently upgraded my Paypal premier account to a business account in hopes that my personal name would not be easily accessible to buyers and/or others I'm in contact with in online auctions. I chose a business name but my personal name is still parenthetically listed beside it. So, now I'm wondering if my name will still be visible to buyers?

Since I haven't gotten any response from Paypal customer service, I thought I'd ask here. I've recently sold some high-dollar merchandise on ebay and I've invariably been contacted by non-bidders offering to send "an agent" over to pick it up, if I would just give them my name and address. I'm imagining that if they had my name they could simply zabasearch it, find my address and then send "an agent" over to pick it up, perhaps when I'm not even there. So any suggestions about conducting secure auction transactions would be appreciated.
