The name of an LLC must end with "Limited Liability Company," "Ltd. Liability Company," "Ltd. Liability Co.," "LLC" or "L.L.C." It must be distinguishable from the name of an LLC incorporated or authorized to transact business in the state, an LLC name reserved or registered, the fictitious name of a foreign LLC, a trade name registered in the state, the trade name of domestic or foreign LLCs entitled to do business in the state, or a name that is reserved or registered. However, the similar name may be registered if the LLC affected consents in writing or by court decree.

Other filings required at time of incorporation
Some states require additional filings or steps at the time of incorporation, such as a county level filing, publishing notice of the LLC formation in a local newspaper or an initial report filing. Nebraska requires the following:
- Publication requirement. Nebraska requires LLCs to publish notice of the incorporation for three consecutive weeks in a publication (i.e. newspaper) in the county of the principal business location.

Proof of publication must be filed with the Secretary of State.
