Your LLC’s Name
The name you chose for your new LLC must be readily told apart from the registered or reserved name of any other business entity on file with the Kentucky Secretary of State.
The LLC’s name must end with “Limited Liability Company” or “Limited Company,” or one of the abbreviations “L.C.,” “L.L.C.,” “LC,” or “LLC.” The word “Limited” may be abbreviated as “Ltd.” and the word “Company” may be abbreviated as “Co.”
You can, however, use a name that’s similar to another business’ name if the other entity gives written permission for you to use the name and applies to change its name to something else. You can also use the same name if a court establishes the applicant LLC’s right to use the name.
An available LLC name may be reserved for a $15 fee.
