Generate Business Name Ideas
To check the availability of your business name, you need to search Louisiana’s database. Navigate to the Louisiana Business Filings Search page. Next, enter your chosen name in the search box to see if it’s available. If no results come up after entering the name, it means your LLC name is unique and available to use.
On the other hand, if you have doubts about the availability of your chosen Louisiana LLC name, you can still file your paperwork. Your filing will be returned and you will be notified on the need to modify your business name to something unique and distinguishable.
