PRI 351: Combined registration of the KRName collection and of sequences in that collection


A submission for the "Combined registration of the KRName collection and of sequences in that collection" has been received by the IVD Registrar. This submission is currently under review according to the procedures of UTS#37, Ideographic Variation Database, with an expected close date of 2017-07-07.

At the end of the review period, the submission has been incorporated into the 2017-12-12 version of the IVD as 36 registered IVSes for the KRName collection.

This page remains available for archival purposes.

Review Instructions

Reviewers are encouraged to comment on any aspect of the submissions, but more particularly on:

  • whether the glyphic subset corresponding to a proposed sequence is indeed a glyphic subset of the base character for the sequence
  • whether the proposed sequences are congruent with the scope of their collection, or whether a new collection may be more appropriate

All comments should be sent via the reporting form and will be forwarded to the submitter. The content of the submission may be adjusted during the review period to account for the comments received.

Korean Name Variants

Korea (Republic of Korea or South Korea) publishes an official list of hanja (text version prepared by Koichi Yasuoka, formatted and enhanced PDF version prepared by Jaemin Chung) that are allowed to be used for personal names, and a small number of them are variants that are either encoded as CJK Compatibility Ideographs, which are subject to normalization, or are simply unencoded. Koichi Yasuoka (安岡孝一) and Motoko Yasuoka (安岡素子) deserve the credit for compiling the list of variants here (see pp 19 through 21) that served as the basis for this collection, and Jaemin Chung deserves credit for suggesting this IVD collection, and for reviewing and providing feedback on the materials that are presented in this PRI.

KRName IVD Collection & Assignments

The purpose of the proposed KRName IVD collection is to support in Unicode plain text the distinctions which are made by Korea's list of hanja for personal names.

This submission covers a total of 18 base characters that correspond to CJK Unified Ideograph (URO) code points.

Representative Glyph Charts

Representative glyphs for the submitted sequences are available in PDF format, which shows the sequences indexed by their base character, in code point order. The complete charts (63KB) show all the submitted sequences.
