The Nevada Secretary of State does NOT offer a name availability service. You may search for the name using the Nevada Business Search on the left side of the home page. Please be aware that if the name that you are interested in has a status of default or active, it is not available. When determining name availability the Secretary of State office removes any and all corporate endings; symbols signs spaces; the word “The” “An” and the symbol for and “&”. The name has to be at least 1 charter different from another “active” or “default” entity.
