    One day my daughter asked me how many names of Jesus are there? I could not answer her except few name. I want to know are there any other names God?

    Here is an 'intellectual' answer from Wikipedia:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_God

    This website lists over 900 names!
    http://www.christiananswers.net/dictionary/namesofgod.html

    The following has a similar listing but with a more manageable list which includes "Father". That was an answer Vassula gave to an interviewer who asked her, "who is God?". She just said, "He is Father" before discussing the topic further.

    The website says this for 'Father':
    Father:A distinctive New Testament revelation is that through faith in Christ, God becomes our personal Father. Father is used of God in the Old Testament only 15 times while it is used of God 245 times in the New Testament. As a name of God, it stresses God’s loving care, provision, discipline, and the way we are to address God in prayer (Matt. 7:11; Jam. 1:17; Heb. 12:5-11; John 15:16; 16:23; Eph. 2:18; 3:15; 1 Thess. 3:11).

    The True Life in God messages refers to 'Father' over 450 times!
