Selecting the Louisiana Corporation or LLC Name
While selecting a name for your new Louisiana corporation or LLC, it should be remembered that the name will and will identify you as a separate entity transacting business in the state. The name of a corporation must end with “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” “Corp” or “Inc.”. When developing a name for a limited liability company it must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “LLC”.
It should be remembered that the name will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity, and 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 Louisiana.
Based on Louisiana guidelines, it is required that you do not use any type of punctuation such as underscores, dashes, 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.
