Desire of all Nations is probably not a real name of God because the translation is questionable. It is more likely that the Hebrew phrase means “wealth of nations” in English. The nations desire riches and those riches ultimately belong to God.1
Desire of all Nations in Hebrew:
Strong’s Concordance numbers: 2532, 3605, 1471
Bible reference: Hag. 2:7 (KJV)
And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. (Haggai 2:7 KJV)
The NASB translates the phrase with “wealth of all nations.” Other versions are also similar to this more likely rendering.
