Choosing a Corporation Name
The name you choose for your new corporation must be able to be distinguished from all other Nevada business entities registered or reserved with the Nevada Secretary of State. If the corporate name appears to be that of a natural person, it must also contain an additional word indicating its corporate status, such as “Incorporated,” “Limited,” “Company,” “Corporation,” or an abbreviation of one of these.
Even if the corporate name does not contain the name of a real person, you will probably want to include one of these “status designator” words because it tells others that your business is incorporated, which give added credibility.
If the name states or implies that the corporation will conduct its operations in the banking, trust, or insurance areas, you will need the prior approval of the state banking superintendent or insurance commissioner.
You can reserve an available name online for up to 90 days for a $40 fee, or you can mail in a paper name reservation form for a $25 fee.
