When you start the name selection process for your Montana corporation, you may want to remember that the name will need to be unique and will identify you as a separate entity transacting business in the state you register it. 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”.
Since the name you choose will be identifying your corporation or limited liability company as a unique business entity, the name will not be accepted by the state if it is likely to mislead the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in Montana.
Do not use any type of punctuation such as dashes, periods, slashes or commas in name selection. It may be advantageous to try to make the name of your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not required.
