In having a business, one has to undergo business name registration and this step can be very difficult especially when it is the first business of a first time businessman or businesswoman. Naming a business can be as hard as naming your first born child since all the names feel as if there is just another name that would suit and fit perfectly. You may think that you have come up with the best but you will just later see that there are other names that could be used a lot better, one that would really embody what the business is all about.

• Root word of the name is important.

• Use only letters or numbers in your name.

You can use them separately or you can use them together, with this, it will surely be easy for you to think of something that will really work on your business.
• Punctuations are accepted.
There are acceptable punctuation marks that you can use in your business like apostrophe or a hyphen and any other else that you commonly see incorporated in words. So, if you came up with a name that uses these punctuation marks, then you do not have to think twice since it will surely be accepted and approve.
• Offensive words are forbidden.
If you are a badass kind of person and you want to take it literally and incorporate that personality in naming your business, don’t even think about it. Every offensive word is forbidden and there is no way around it so keep the business name wholesome and clean if you want your business name to approved and your business to be operational.
2. Check the name.
One thing about coming up with a business name is coming up with something that has already been used by someone else. You cannot use a business name that is already been in used because there will be confusions in the documentations and there will be a duplicate that would just complicate things. So, check to see if the name already exists and come up with a new one if it is.
3. Register the company business name.
