LLC Glossary


The name of the LLC must generally end with the words "Limited Liability Company," "Ltd. Liability Co.," "LLC" or "L.L.C." An LLC name will not be accepted if it is likely to mislead the public or if a similar name is already registered in the same state.

  • Incorporated, corporation, corp. or inc.
  • Bank
  • Trust or trustee
  • Cooperative
  • Olympic or Olympiad
  • Insurer or insurance company
