Scripture

For thus shall my church be called in the last days, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.—Doctrine & Covenants 115:4

Quote

Thus, the name of the Church is not negotiable. When the Savior clearly states what the name of His Church should be and even precedes His declaration with, “Thus shall my church be called,” He is serious. And if we allow nicknames to be used or adopt or even sponsor those nicknames ourselves, He is offended.—Russell M. Nelson
