d) Desist from offensive terms when looking to choose a business name
All state and federal laws do not allow businesses or other organizations to use offensive terms in their names. For instance, you cannot use a name that includes swearing words. For instance, you cannot use a name that includes swearing words, words that are offensive to any religion, words that demean certain groups of people, or words that depict pornography. Such a name will be rejected in the first instance.
Businesses are also not allowed to use misleading or inappropriate words. For instance, a limited company is at liberty to use the word limited or just the letters Ltd as a component of its business name. Also, a public limited company is at liberty to use Plc as part of its business name. But if the businesses are not part of the body, they cannot use those initials.
Make sure you follow the legal requirements of naming your business outlined above to prevent problems with the authorities. It’s quite easy to determine these legal aspects these days. You don’t need to queue in some government office to determine this. Just go to government websites and check.
