Religion of Love

Practice » MNO » Names  (Previous | Next)


[845] Names should always be chosen with deliberation. Everybody should be able to choose zis name as of a certain age. The identification assigned by the authorities needs not to be amended during the entire life. The chosen name should be acceptable and understandable for the fellow men. Pious names have a reference to L. Within the order a religious name may be chosen.

[846] Names have not to be sex-specific: If the new planned language comes, will be not anymore differentiated between the sexes to underline their equality. It is a sign of positive traditional awareness to maintain a family name. Who has yet made bad experiences with zis family, should receive the opportunity at zis wish to be able to take off the family name.

[847] Persons are addressed as they want to be addressed or how it is due to them. However, the address must be acceptable. The planned language determines through an election, with which words people address each other politely. In official matters, the use of the official identification may be required. The chosen names are to record in the identification documents.

[848] Since the identification does not change during a life, the change of the names chosen should cost little. The latter may have to meet appropriate deadlines. The authorities may defeat by law certain choices of names, if this happens for the benefit of the community and the namebearer. Since people differ only slightly before L, the religion of love disregards titles in addresses.

[2080] Since every person whose karma justifies this can represent zerself publicly appropriately and in detail, so that everybody who wants this can inform zerself extensively of it, with the increasing technical possibilities, addresses that contain greeting word, address word, employment title and name or ID are gen. sufficient, if they shall not still be embellished eminently, for various reasons.

[2081] Since a unification and shortness, for reasons of equity and pragmatism, is useful and appropriate here - especially if the world language is spoken everywhere, greeting word (with the meaning "greeting you", in Lango for instance "sal") and address word ("valued", "va") shall be monosyllabic and sound good. One of them can each time be omitted depending on the situation. So the address word has rather formal character.

[2082] Letters can be briefly concluded with address word and the own name. The equivalence of man and of its occupation is not compatible with selective titles, which appreciate certain achievements, but do not the often much greater ones. Therefore, titles shall not be part of the name. This reduces the mutual distances between the humans and increases the justice through equal consideration.

[2083] No one's achievement is to be played down, but it shall not be present overly. No vanities shall be served, but everyone shall be self-assuredly that what ze is. E.g. no scientific achievement can compete with that which saved many persons from certain death, or enriched their lives in a special way. No title honours such an achievement, but the scientific one however.

[2084] Ennobling is also an appreciation of an achievement. A title resulting from it is problematic if the service was not performed zerself, or is not as great as it is normally required e.g., by a cash payment or a marriage. Who acquires privileges connected with it, without having performed an equivalent service, feels sometime ungently the compensating justice of L.

[939] At L's wish and after evaluating the numbers of speakers of all theistic religions, the name of L is set to Lo in the planned language uniformly worldwide, with the o only spoken, not written. On the computer Lo is keyed in and converted into L. Adjective is La and adverb is Le. Since articles are omitted, collisions are not expected or precluded during the vote on the planned language.

[940] So far existing names as Lo are written as Lo or according to pronunciation (the undo function prevents when typing on the computer the conversion into L). Who is called Lo, may count zerself lucky in some way or rename zerself, but must not write L for zerself if ze really wants to do justice to L; who heretofore was called L in zis language, loses a name which was never due to zer. The same applies to adjective and adverb.

[941] There is no plural for L since there is only one L. To be able to speak and write of gods, an own word is determined in the vote on the planned language, to which then also a singular can be formed. Thus L is signified by an asymmetrical letter, since the (infinitely) broken symmetry is a sign of highest development. Special characters may be also asymmetrical.
