Guidelines for choosing your company name

Same or similar

The name you choose should not be the same or similar to existing names, neither by words nor by phone. In this case and if such a name is found, it can be considered a crime. A name must contain a noun and an activity word that denote the business that is performed. The company name search process helps you avoid such mistakes.


The applicant is requested to conduct a trademark search to ensure that the name chosen by a firm does not exist. This process prevents duplication.

Choose relevant name

A name should do the following:

Worth doing
  •  A word that gives a glimpse about the company should be mentioned.
  • A name must be unique to avoid duplication or crime.
  • In the case of PVT Limited, it should be the abbreviation at the end of the name.
What not to do
  • A name should not be offensive.
  • The plural version of any existing name will not apply.
  • Adding and joining different names to make the same can be considered a company.
  • The use of a different tense or number will not count as a second name.
  • Block your domain name
  • It is necessary to create a separate domain name for the applicant, so you should block your domain name to avoid duplication.
