This morning I made an "alternate" list of Hexagram names using the Tenth of the Ten Wings, Tsa Kua. In some cases I had to simplify what was in the text, but taking care not to take great liberties. In others it was basically a "copy/paste". But this list should help if you ever feel "stuck" and need a second opinion on the meaning of a hexagram. One that aligns with traditional Chinese conceptions. Hope it helps!

1. Strength
2. Yielding
3. Rooted
4. Confusion
5. Halting
6. Hate
7. Mourning
8. Joyousness
9. Slight
10. Leaving
11. Good Fortune
12. Misfortune
13. Love
14. The Mass
15. Simplicity
16. Inertia
17. Tolerance
18. Making Order
19. Giving
20. Taking
21. Consuming
22. Purity
23. Decay
24. Coming Back
25. Accident
26. The Time
27. Nutrition
28. The Peak
29. Falling
30. Rising
31. Passion
32. Stability
33. Withdrawing
34. Pausing
35. The Day
36. Injury
37. Inside
38. Estrangement
39. Difficulty
40. Relaxation
41. Beginning of Flowering
42. Beginning of Decline
43. Resoluteness
44. Meeting
45. Amassing
46. Going Away
47. The Encounter
48. Union
49. Renewal
50. The New
51. Beginning
52. Stopping
53. The Groom
54. The Bride
55. Many Events
56. The Loner
57. Crouching
58. Manifest
59. Scattering
60. Holding Back
61. Dependability

This is a nice project you have given yourself. Some of the names line up for me and some don't, but I still like it and I can see where a secondary list like this could come in handy for depth but not core meanings. "6. Hate" is interesting to me.. as far as I know, and I don't know a lot, but the meaning of this hexagram's name is something like Litigation, Conflict, Argue etc. Hate is a baggage that seems to naturally come with arguing etc. .. so that interests me in a different way, along side the traditional concepts I am trying to understand.

Appreciate the exercise MrYou1.

Thanks!

And yeah, this is really meant as a supplement, not at all to replace the already well-developed titles of the Hexagrams. If you have the Wilhelm/Baynes translation you can easily see where I got these from (the Tenth Wing), I've just simplified them to the same standard as what is typical of Hexagram titles.
