Baby Names


I have heard that True Parents have given names for the children born of each Blessing. What are those names, and how could I use them in naming a blessed child?


There were not any names given specifically for Western blessed children, but the following is a list of the names True Parents gave to the Japanese members, from the 777 couples up to the most recent Blessing of the 2075 and 6000 couples. Father gave the same names for the last two Blessings because he sees them as one 8000 Blessing group.

When these names are given to a child, we should give just one of the ones on this list, and give another which we choose ourselves. For example, if we chose the name "Chung" from the 1800 couples' list, we would add a second Korean name like "Hi," to make the name "Chung Hi." It is also possible to combine the Korean name Father gave with an English name or word, and generally to use our own creativity in naming our children. It is not at all mandatory to use these names, but as so many people have expressed interest, it seemed valuable to share them with you.
