Fictitious Name Law and Legal Definition
Fictitious name is a name which a person adopts or assumes either for business purposes or in his social relations. It is a name artificially contrived or adopted. It also refers to a name other than the true name of a corporation, used by the corporation in transacting business or conducting its affairs.
A person has, in the absence of a statute to the contrary, the right to assume any name under which he chooses to conduct his business, so long as such business is conducted under such name in good faith, and may maintain an action for breach of contracts made under such business name.
