Selecting the West Virginia Corporation or LLC Name
Since the name you choose for your West Virginia based business will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity within the state, 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 West Virginia state.
West Virginia guidelines state that you should remember not to use any type of punctuation such as underscores, dashes, periods or commas in the business name selection. Some find it to their advantage to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not required by the state when incorporating or forming an LLC.
