Registering a Limited Liability Company Name

Choosing a business name is one of the first steps in the process of forming your New Mexico Limited Liability Company. The name that you choose:

  • Must contain, as the last words of the name, the words
    • limited liability Company
    • limited company
    • L.L.C.
    • LLC
    • L.C.
    • LC
    • 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 New Mexico limited liability company, limited partnership or corporation existing under the laws of this state; foreign limited liability company or corporation authorized to transact business in this state; and name reserved in this state

A New Mexico LLC may apply to the secretary of state for authorization to use a name that is not distinguishable if the applicant files with the commission a certified copy of a final decree of a court establishing the prior right of the limited liability company to use 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 for your New Mexico Limited Liability Company before filing to see which names are available.
