Names Registering an LLC Name
Choosing a business name is one of the first steps in the process of forming your California Limited Liability Company. The name that you choose:
- Must contain, as the last words of the name, the words “limited liability company” or the abbreviation “LLC” or “L.L.C.” as the last words in the name of the limited liability company. The words “limited” and “company” maybe abbreviated to “Ltd.” and “Co.,” respectively
- May contain the name of one or more members
- Must be distinguishable (not the same as or deceptively similar to) the name of any California Limited Liability Company or foreign LLC reserved or registered
- Must not contain the words “bank,” “trust,” “trustee,” “incorporated,” “inc.,” corporation,” or “corp.,” or “insurer” or “insurance company” or any other words suggesting that it is in the business of issuing policies of insurance and assuming insurance risks
