In case there is any confusion, the real name of the "Mormon" church is:
THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS.

Members refer to each other as brother, or sister and the body of membership is called "Saints" or "The Saints".

The nickname Mormon comes from a prophet named Mormon, whom the Book of Mormon is named after. Mormon condensed a number of ancient records, which is what the Book of Mormon is a translation of.

FYI our Leaders have asked us to make an effort to use the correct name, instead of Mormon, or Mormons. Thus my post with this information.
