Names to Deities?!

Hare Krishna Dear Devotees! Please, accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada! Could You help me to find all the known Names of Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga?! I have only 108 Names of Lord Gauranga. But i would like to know much more. For example, in our Temple Devotees called Gauranga Mahaprabhu as Gour Govinda. But i could not find that Name. and will it be correct if we call Gauranga Mahaprabhu by Lord Krishna's Names and Lord Nityananda by Lord Balarama's?

Thank You!

Your servant, maral

P.S. Prarana? What does this Name mean?
