ABSTRACT

This paper aims to elaborate the topic of dual naming; its nature, typology, motivations, methods, and most importantly, ways to pursue it, with specific focus on the naming of the sea between Korea and Japan. Beginning by a review of the definition of dual naming and circumstances under which dual names appear, it takes note of motivations of dual naming, including recognizing different identities without taking the risk of claiming one at the expense of the other, achieving universal human values by keeping balance between two names, reflecting the reality that both names are already used, and satisfying the rule in multi-lingual areas. Various methods of dual naming are listed in consideration of the relative status given to each name. It is pointed out that what matters will be how acceptable each of the methods is to each party concerned. Three items are suggested to discuss further: responses to barriers to dual naming, institutional framework to activate dual naming, and benefits that each party and the international society will receive by achieving dual naming.
