Registering a LLC Name

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

  • Must contain, as the last words of the name, “limited liability company” or “L.L.C.” or “LLC,” “limited company” or “L.C.” or “LC.” The word “limited” may be abbreviated as “Ltd” and the word “company” may be abbreviated as “Co.”
  • Must be distinguishable from any reserved or fictitious name or the name of any corporation, limited partnership, limited liability partnership or West Virginia limited liability company incorporated, organized or authorized to transact business in this state and registered with the Secretary of State

United Agent Services allow you to choose up to 3 names, in order of preference. We will conduct a name check for your West Virginia Limited Liability Company before filing to see which names are available.
