CORPORATE NAME (REQUIRED)
The name must end with the word "Corporation," "Incorporated" or "Limited," or the abbreviation "Corp.," Inc.," or "LTD.". Enter three names, in order of preference. A unique
name is more likely to be accepted by the Department of State and to be
filed quickly. If all names are rejected by the Department of State, we
will contact you for additional choices, with a resulting delay. A name
that is particular and descriptive is less likely to conflict with
existing corporate names. If all names are rejected by the Department of
State, we will contact you for additional charges for a further search.
