Selecting the Hawaii Corporation or LLC Name
Since the name you select for your Hawaii based will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity, the name will not be accepted if it is likely to mislead the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in Hawaii.
During the process of naming your business, you may not use any type of punctuation such as dashes, hyphens, periods or commas in name selection. It is advantageous to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not required.
Selecting a Board of Directors
