Are any words prohibited in the business name I choose?


LLC Formation or Incorporation Filing Service

There are restrictions on the words that your business name can contain. However, most of the restrictions are in place to ensure that your name does not mislead the general public or imply that the business is a different type of entity than it actually is. For example, you cannot make your LLC name "Acme Incorporated" because that implies that you are a Corporation. Likewise, your name cannot include "LLC" if you are a Corporation.
