Have you ever met someone named ABCDEF GHIJK?


But that’s not a name; it’s the alphabet in English!?

In Indonesia, a man named his son ABCDEF GHIJK Zuzu.

When the youngster went to obtain his coronavirus vaccine in Muara Enin, in the Indonesian state of South Sumatra, the strange origin behind his name was revealed.

The 12-year-old youngster typed ABCDEF GHIJK Zuzu as his complete name. And the authorities mistook him for a prankster. When they checked the name with his father, though, they realised it was one of the most odd names they had encountered.


The boy’s name is ABCDEF GHIK Zuzu, according to photos of his paperwork and a name tag stitched on his clothes.

According to some local stories, the boy was given the name because of his father’s passion for crossword puzzles, while others indicate that he aspired to be a writer.

Zuzu, on the other hand, is a combination of the boy’s parents’ names, Zuhro and Zulfahmi.

The boy chooses to go by the nickname Adef.

The boy’s father had intended to call his two kids NOPQ RSTUV and XYZ, but instead picked Ammar and Attur as their regular names.
