Wikipedia article. In 2008, Kim was baptized as a Catholic alongside her mother, taking the saint’s name Stella. In 2009, Kim enrolled at Korea University as a Physical Education major. The correct transliteration of her name from Korean would be ‘Kim Yeona’. However, when she applied for her passport, she intended to write her name as ‘Yun-a’, but the official mis-wrote her name as ‘Yu-na’. In Hangul, ‘Yun–a’ would properly be spelled “연아” and not “유나.”From the 2010–2011 season, her name was registered as ‘Yuna Kim’ at ISU profile.
