A DAD has reportedly incurred the wrath of his in-laws after giving his son what must be a statistically unique name.
Samet Wahyudi, 38, from Central Java, Indonesia agreed to marry his fiancé on condition their child was named Statistical Information Communication Office in tribute to his workplace.
And so, at five months old Mr Wahyudi’s son was named after his beloved workplace in the civil service — and the dad claims he has Statistical’s birth certificate to prove it.
Indonesian media reported the dad made it clear to his fiancé Linda before they got married if they had a son he should have this name.
She agreed but her parents objected, although now they have reportedly backed down.
Mr Wahyudi told reporters that he got a job as a civil servant in the city of Brebes in 2003 and his office has become like a second home for him, so he wanted it “connected to his son somehow”.
But since the name Statistical Information Communication Office is a bit of a mouthful, the parents have decided to nickname him Dinko.
Lately, giving your child outlandish names has become a trend in Indonesia.
As reported, a dad has reportedly given his son a very unique name inspired by his love for crossword puzzles.
