Registering an LLC Name

Choosing a business name is one of the first steps in the process of forming your Connecticut
LLC. The name that you choose:

  • Must contain, as the last words of the name, the words “Limited Liability Company” or
  • The abbreviations “L.L.C.” or “LLC”. The word “Limited” may be abbreviated as “Ltd.” and the
  • Word “Company” may be abbreviated as “Co.”
  • Must be distinguishable from the name of any domestic LLC, limited partnership or
  • Corporation or foreign LLC, limited partnership, or corporation authorized to do business in the
  • State or any name reserved or registered

A domestic LLC may apply to use a name that not distinguishable (the same as, or deceptively similar to) to the name of an entity if the applicant files with the Secretary of the State a certified copy of a final decree of a court of competent jurisdiction establishing the prior right of the applicant to the use of such name in this state.

United Agent Services allows you to choose up to 3 names, in order of preference. We will conduct a name check before filing to see which names are available.
