When narrowing down the name choices for your corporation in New Jersey, you may want to remember that the name will be unique 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 may help to remember that it must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “LLC”.
Since the name you choose for your business will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity, the name will not be accepted if it is likely to confuse the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in New Jersey.
Do to New Jersey requirements, you must not use any type of punctuation such as dashes, colons, underscores, periods or commas in name selection. It might be advantageous to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not a requirement of the state.
