This name generator gives you 15 random names that are special or popular to members of the Later-day Saints Church of Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith's Church of Jesus Christ of the Later-Day Saints, also called the Mormons to outsiders, is a religious and cultural community that began in the 1820s. They usually have very family centered values and scriptures, and their teachings forbid harmful drugs, including alcohol and tobacco. They also respect reliability, sincerity, lawful obedience and the teachings that Jesus Christ teaches and those in the Scriptures. The word Mormon is denied by the President of the Later Days because it excludes the name of Jesus from the name of the church and that it's the faith God who told Joseph Smith the name is The Church of the Latter-day Saint and not the Church of Jesus Christ of Mormon. Some have embraced this, some do not see the point and some also have different views. I have included both words partly because the official name is amazingly long and partly because many people are Mormons. Many foreigners do not know the difference, so for them it's much easier to find this generator when we use this definition to add both words and meaning. As far as names are concerned, the Church of Jesus Crist of Saints Later-Day is located all over the world and you can find names from many cultures. Several names are more popular or special to those in the United States with the highest population of 6,6 million, with 1,5 million members followed by Mexico and Brazil. This generator focuses on the names which seem to be peculiar to this religion, mostly combined names or names such as Brulee, Hannlin, Laverkin, and Chadly Anne. Some names in nature are almost French, like LaBerta, LaConna, L'Anique, etc. But new developments are emerging as time goes by because members are not required to use scriptural names or other conventions. These more unusual names are most popular in Utah (the heart of the Mormon influence), although other names are also found here. There are also no special Mormon surnames, although certain surnames occur most frequently. Many of them date to the settlers who settled mostly in Utah, but because of this they are also also found abroad.

The religion known as the Mormon Church truly, really does want to be called by its name, The Latter Day Saints. Not just the LDS Church. Not just the Utah Church. It became that obvious Thursday afternoon as the second attempt to get rid of those embarrassing nicknames for the state-based faith floundered. Utah's largest newspaper, the Deseret News, called on the LDS Church's Salt Lake City headquarters for a clarification. The church responded by issuing a lengthy statement explaining that it does not want the nickname, but it did say that the name is a matter of tradition and heritage that must be kept.
"The name Saint has been associated with the religion since its beginnings," said LDS Church spokeswoman Julie Smith. She also clarified that the church doesn't have any plans to change the name. "For us, it's always been Saint Louis and the Missouri Mission," she said. "So we want to continue with that." The Salt Lake Tribune reported that St. Louis, Missouri is where the church's headquarters are. The newspaper reported that the church had no immediate plans to change the name of the area.
The Saints was named after a group of pioneers who left their homes to find the community in which the religion is known. The religion believes that Joseph Smith received a heavenly revelation from God about the ancient American settlers. His followers spread the message of the restoration of the gospel in the Americas through the Book of Mormon. The name was first used to honor the Saints who traveled to Illinois. Today, the church is headed by the prophet, Elder Dallin H. Oaks. He serves as an apostle of the church. He has been called to lead the LDS stake in the state of Utah.
