Picking the name for your Panamanian corporationThe name of the Company can be in English or Spanish (or any other language). There are restrictions on what types of words you can use in a company name. See "restrictions" below.
No company can be incorporated which has a name which is identical to another company incorporated in the Republic of Panama or so closely resembles the name that it could be deceptive or create confusion.
The name of the company must include one of the following words or its abbreviation:
Please note that in Panama it is not possible to use the ending "Limited" or "Ltd.", since these may be confused with Limited Liability Companies.
Possible words to use in the name:
If you wanted to use the name Blue Mountains, Inc., it's quite possible that the name is not available because there is already a company with that name registered in Panama. In order to avoid your name being rejected because it is identical to another name, you might consider using a name such as Blue Mountain Holdings, Inc. or Blue Mountain Investments, Inc.
