Google Plus 'Real Name Policy' prevents creating Business profile.

>> Sunday, October 2, 2011

As Google+ has opened the public, the "real names policy' seems to have been overwhelmed by a flood of  'un-real' names and business profiles. Many people created business profiles, similar to Facebook Pages, but eventually lead to the suspension of their account.
Despite continuing criticism, Google plus is still continuing to enforce their 'real name only policy'.
Google+ does not support profiles for couples or groups of people. Additionally, you cannot create a profile for a non-person entity such as a pet or business. When you create your profile, Google's system will check the name you submitted for unusual characters. For example, numbers, symbols, and obscure punctuation are not supported. 

Google will not allow you to provide 'un-real' names.
If you continue to provide names that Google cannot recognize as a 'real human name', your account will be suspended with below message (see screenshot also)

 "It appears the name you entered does not comply with the Google+ names policy.
The names policy requires that you use the name that you are commonly referred to in real life in your profile...
If you do not edit your name to comply with the names policy by August 22, 2011, your profile will be suspended: you will not be able to make full use of Google services that require an active profile, such as Google+, Buzz, Reader, and Picasa. This will not prevent you from using other Google services, like Gmail.."
