The DPRK authorities intend to protect the supreme authority of their leader by any means

Back in January 2011, shortly after Kim Jong-un was appointed chairman of the Central Military Commission, the DPRK authorities issued a recommendation on the voluntary change of the name of citizens with similar names to another.

However, the measures have now become radicalized. The DPRK authorities have legally banned the use of the name "Chen Un" for newborn babies. At the same time, public security authorities and party bodies should draw up a list of residents who are registered under the name of Kim Jong-un, and then instruct them on changing their names on a "voluntary" basis. According to the authorities, this decision was made to protect the supreme authority of the leader.

It can also be noted that such decrees still operate in relation to the names of Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung, the former North Korean leaders.
