When brainstorming for a name for your Mississippi business, it should be remembered that the corporation or LLC name will be unique and will identify you as a separate entity transacting business in the state. The name you choose for your corporation is required to end with “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” “Corp” or “Inc.”. When developing a name for a limited liability company, Mississippi requires that it must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “LLC”.
The name will not be accepted by the state if it is likely to mislead or confuse the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in Mississippi.
Do not use any type of punctuation such as dashes, periods, underscores or commas in name selection. It is to your advantage to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you will provide, but this is not a requirement.
