ABSTRACT

This paper suggests a new direction of making Hangeul names in view of the Hangeul(Korean Alphabet) cultural community. We newly organize the concept and category of Hangeul names which include names of a Chinese character written in Hangeul as much as the names of the original Korean vocabulary. This type of combination produces, for example, from “슬기(seul-gi)” and “지혜(chi-hye)”, “슬지(seul-chi), 슬혜(seul-hye), 기지(ki-chi), 기혜(ki-hye), 지슬(chi-seul), 지기(chi-gi), 혜슬(hye-seul), 혜기(hye-gi)”. Through this method, we will be able to gain the following results: (1) We can make more human names with Hangeul, (2) We will be able to overcome the dichotomy between Chinese characters and Hangeul, (3) We will be able to truly accomplish a cultural community using Hangeul writing system.
