Your LLC’s Name
The name you chose for your new LLC must be readily distinguishable from the registered or reserved name of any other business entity on file with the North Dakota Secretary of State, as well as any registered trademarks.
The LLC’s name must end with “Limited Liability Company” or the abbreviations “L.L.C.” or “LLC.” The name may not contain a word or phrase that states or implies that the LLC is organized for an unlawful purpose, nor may it contain the words “bank,” “banker,” “banking,” “corporation,” “incorporated,” “limited partnership,” “limited liability partnership,” “limited liability limited partnership,” or any abbreviations thereof.
You can, however, use a name that’s not readily distinguishable from another business’ name if the other entity gives written consent 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 12 months for $10.
