Choosing a Corporation Name
The name of your new Maryland corporation is very important-it’s one of the first official acts of your business organization, and it’s how people first meet your company.
Your company’s name must be able to be told apart from any other registered or reserved Maryland business entity. It must also contain one or more of the following words (or an abbreviation thereof): “Incorporated,” “Corporation,” “Company” (but this must not follow the word “and” or a symbol for “and”), or “Limited.”
Your corporation’s name also is not allowed to include language that states or gives the impression that the corporation is organized for any purpose other than one permitted by state law and its articles of incorporation.
You can reserve an available name for 30 days for a $7 fee.
