Any document listing any name in a foreign language must have the
English version at least in the comments area of the cover memo. If it is a person’s name they must state
that fact on the cover memo.
Words that are vulgar, or that translate as profanities, or would
otherwise be harmful to the state or deceptive to the public are actually prohibited.
Delaware has one of the shortest list of restricted words! Do you plan on registering your Delaware
company to do business in another state?
NY, FL, CA, and many others have a much more extensive list. You may want to take this into consideration
before naming your Delaware company or you will end up having to choose an
alternate name for the other state.
For more information on company names, our
service team is available to assist you by email
