1.) Do I need to file an Amendment with the state just to change the designator?

You cannot just start to use a fictitious name. There is a $70 filing fee to register a fictitious name or file a Certificate of Amendment with the Corporations Bureau to change the name, so it would make sense to change the name of the LLC. After the Corporations Bureau processes the name change, you have to notify the Department of Revenue.
