    Har is one of the Man Made Names of the Creator..GOD..Akal Purakh... Its ONE 3 alphabet word "HAR"..the second is repetition...

    ALL MAN MADE Names of God/Creator are actually INCOMPLETE ...simply becasue they are Man Made..and ONLY GOD is Complete...
    Example: Beethal...caretaker of the uneducated ( then who is the caretaker of the educated ??) Gopal..Protector of the cows/cowherds..then who is protector of the chicken farmer ?? the horse keeper..the pig rearer ??? Narayan..Lord of the Oceans..then who is Lord of teh Mountains... etc etc etc..

    WAHEGURU..O WONDROUS CREATOR..O WONDROUS GURU...is simply Ecstacy..wonder at HIM..His CREATION..HIS Nature...His Universes and Galaxies......its NOT a "name" per se.....

    Could it also be the One gives what each soul needs? Just as each child needs something different from her siblings according to her temperament. I am not disagreeing, just asking questions to help me understand better. Perhaps there are truly infinite Names.

    Thank you, for these explanations. It helped a lot.

    well said Jasnoor ji ,

    "Har " is also a beautiful Name among infinite names of ONE .

    In japji Sahib Guru Nanak says

    ਅਸੰਖ ਨਾਵ ਅਸੰਖ ਥਾਵ ॥
    Countless names, countless places.

    ਅਗੰਮ ਅਗੰਮ ਅਸੰਖ ਲੋਅ ॥
    Inaccessible, unapproachable, countless celestial realms.

    ਅਸੰਖ ਕਹਹਿ ਸਿਰਿ ਭਾਰੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
    Even to call them countless is to carry the weight on your head.
