Definition of a Fictitious Business Name:
In the case of a business owned by an individual, a “fictitious business name” is any name that does not include the last name (surname) of the owner, or which implies additional owners (such as “Company”, “and Company”, “and Sons”, “Associates”, etc.).
A fictitious business name or “doing business as,” also known as a DBA, gives business owners an inexpensive method of gaining the legal right to operate in a name other than their own. It protects the public and extends legal protections and privileges to business owners.
