Every name of God in Sikhism - I will start please continue. Also if anyone can do a word count please tell me how many times it occurs in gurbani i think whaeguru occurs 13 times and maybe Har is the most used name. We find attributes or descriptions of God could be classed as his names as well. This list must be huge but start it off. Just like the list here let us compose our own http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_God_in_Islam

Whaeguru (va - he- gu - ru ) [satnaam]

Akalpurkh

Rab - (arabic from islam - the lord)

Khuda - (persian, from zorostrainism used by islam via sufism)

Har - (Har har - comming from vaishnism associated with vishnu more so krishna)

Ram - (comming from vaishnism association of avtar of vishnu Ram chander)

illah- (arabic from islam - the god)

allah- (arabic from islam - the god)

parbrahm - (he who is above Brahma)

parmatma - (he who is above atma i.e. soul)

Raheem (arabic from islam - the most merciful)

Kareem (arabic from islam- the most gracious)

- Jaap sahib then is said as : Macauliffe says, "The Hindus have a work enitled Vishnu Sahasar Nam, 'Vishnu's Thousand Names.' The Jaapji was composed to supply the Sikhs with a similar number of epithets of the Creator." Which will hold more however from SGGS please let's have more and maybe we can organise this list with references to bani, count, context, by which mehla and so forth
