In the DIFC, a company, general partnership or limited liability partnership must seek the approval of the Registrar to the use of a particular name. The Registrar also has a very broad power to direct such persons to change their name if the name by which the person is registered is "misleading, conflicting or otherwise undesirable" (see for instance Article 19 of the DIFC Companies Law).
