Nice thread Jee, 

The question you are asking is utmost precious and beautiful, for it is asking about the description of the Creator Himself.

Though any amount of description through words of that Primal Being Nam/Satnam would be very poor,  but in my humble and limited perspective, I would say that:

Gupt Nam, is that creative Power of all that exists whether seen or unseen at our level, and which is the only changeless Truth since Aad Jugaad in its original form there in Sach Khand. 

And Pargat Nam, is when you manifest that Nam within you, when one can see its refulgence and listen its divine enrapturing melodies .... all that within onself.

Now, how to pargat that Nam within us?

Well, Sree Guru Amar Das Maharaj, reveals us the secret about it when He openly tells us in Anand Sahib: 


ਨਾਮੁ ਜਿਨ ਕੈ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਵਾਜੇ ਸਬਦ ਘਨੇਰੇ ॥

Naam Jin Kai Man Vasiaa Vaajae Sabadh Ghanaerae ||

नामु जिन कै मनि वसिआ वाजे सबद घनेरे ॥

The divine melody of the Shabad vibrates for those, within whose minds the Naam abides.


*He says, when one succeeds in the concentration of the Nam/e Waheguru by its continous repetition in the mind, then that Nam becomes manifest within us, and we can see the Jot and listen the Shabad Dhun or Anhad Naad / Naam, within us, that too not with our petty efforts, but by His kirpa/Mercy alone.

That is why in other verses of Anand Sahib, Guru Jee tells us:


ਕਰਿ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਜਿਨ ਨਾਮਿ ਲਾਇਹਿ ਸਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਸਦਾ ਧਿਆਵਹੇ ॥

Kar Kirapaa Jin Naam Laaeihi S Har Har Sadhaa Dhhiaavehae ||

करि किरपा जिन नामि लाइहि सि हरि हरि सदा धिआवहे ॥

In Your Mercy, when You attach them to the Naam; then only they meditate forever on the Lord, Har, Har.


Hope, your doubt is cleared to some extent.
