Names of God

I love names. I have a list of my favorite names. I like telling people that I like their names and would say their names five times or so just to enjoy its beauty. Some of them are Sunday, Honor, Umaga, Jane, Anne, Edward, Paul, Elaine and Louise. I just love calling them their names.
