Indonesian Man Names Newborn Son After His Job Department

Let me introduce you to Dinas Komunikasi Informatika Statistik, if you think this sounds like the name of a company or ministry, then you’re right on track because this is indeed the name of a job department in an Indonesian company.

But the most interesting part about this name is that it also belongs to a four-month-old baby boy in Brebes Regency, Central Java. No seriously, there’s proof.

If you have to know, the name Dinas Komunikasi Informatika Statistik literally translates to “Department of Informatics and Statistical Communication”, which is the department 38-year-old Slamet “Yoga” Wahyudi has worked at for the past 17 years of his life.

You could say that Wahyudi’s passion and dedication to his job is what led him to name his son after his job department. While most people, like their friends and family, would call this a crazy idea, Wahyudi and his wife were surprisingly alright with it.

Luckily, Wahyudi has a special nickname for his newborn son – Dinko. One might argue that even the nickname is unorthodox but if you ask me, anything is better than having someone calling you by your father’s job department for the rest of your life.

However, as crazy as this name may sound, I still think that nothing beats Elon Musk and Grimes name choice for their son, X Æ A-12 (I had to copy and paste that name out because my keyboard couldn’t even type those symbols).

Regardless of what the reasoning behind these ridiculous name choices may be, I can only hope that these kids won’t have to suffer years of taunting and bullying for their names.

What’s the most ridiculous or unique name choice you’ve heard of? Let us know!
