Abstract:
A list of some of the names of God from English translations of the Baha'i Writings.
Notes:
This is an incomplete list of nouns and descriptive nouns used to refer to God in the Baha'i Writings; so far 331 have been found. It will be expanded as more Writings are translated. Some may be duplicates, e.g. "Self-Sufficient" and "Self-Sufficing" may be slightly different translations of the same term in the Arabic or Persian original.
