Name and Logo

Sowoon is the honorable title of Professor Sejin Nam. The Chinese character "So" literally means "singing", and "Woon" cloud. Together, they form Sowoon, the "singing cloud". In Korean, the word cloud also stands for scholar or nobleman, so Sowoon means the singing scholar.

The symbol is similar to the old Korean character of "소", pronounced as saw. The ㅅ stands for mountain, cloud, and sky; the dot in the middle stands for man; the bottom dash stands for Earth.
