Choosing a Corporation Name
Your Iowa corporation’s name must be noticeably different from any other registered Iowa business entity, as well as any reserved names on file with the Iowa Secretary of State, with only a few exceptions. It also is not allowed to use language that states or implies that the corporation is organized for a purpose not allowed by state law or the corporation’s articles of incorporation.
The name also may not state or imply that the corporation is organized for some purpose other than that stated in its articles of incorporation.
Your new corporation’s name has to include the words “Corporation,” “Incorporated,” “Company,” or “Limited,” or abbreviations thereof
You can reserve a name not already taken by another entity for up to 120 days for $10.
