Hi Ramesh,
Install this Appexchange app(DupeCatcher, Real Time Deduplication) on your org. This will solve your problem.

link to install:

Here you need to setup de-Dupe validation rule. And you can alert/restrict user to do not create Account based on mataching Criteria. Its very easy to configure.

Hi,
You have to use trigger in account object (before insert), so than only prevent duplicate account name.
