Selecting the North Carolina Corporation or LLC Name
Since the business name you go with will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity, the name you choose will likely not be accepted by the state if it is likely to mislead the public at large or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC that has already been formed in North Carolina.
Based on North Carolina requirements, you may not use any type of punctuation such as dashes, hyphens, asterisks, exclamation points, colons, periods, underscores or commas in company name selection.
