We can see various examples in the corporate world like Reliance, TATA, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) etc. have become brands in their own market by choosing such words which reflect quality, combination or characteristics of Goods and services.

Second part

Apart from a name that is distinctive, another important thing that an LLP name must reflect is the business activity. If the consumers can get an idea of your business activities from the name itself, it helps in targeting the right audience. This in turn helps in indirectly promoting the activities of the LLP.

Third Part

As per The Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008 all entities registered under this Act must add the word “LLP” at the end of its name. This helps in understanding the business structure just from its name. Further, it also increases the authenticity of the brand. Lastly, having the appropriate suffix also avoids confusion, for example, a PLC cannot use ‘LLP’ in its name.
