Recommended Posts

In Indonesia:

1. Dwi (means "second"/"two"; only for second child ) - U

2. Muhammad - M

3. Putra - M

4. Dian - *

5. Indah - F

6. Tri (means "three"/"third"; only for third child ) - U

7. Agus - M

8. Ade - *

9. Nur - U

10. Fitri - F

11. Andi - M

12. Reza - *

13. Rio - M

14. Siti - F

15. Yudi - M

 

Notes: M - Male, F - Female, U - Both female and male

* Dian is commonly for female, but also found on male names (ex: Dian David Mickael Jacobs - Paralympic table tennis athlete)

* Reza and Ade is commonly for male, but also found on female names

 

If you ask for most common surnames, no we don't have it. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indonesian_names#Naming_forms)

 

Western names started trending in Indonesia in the 1990s.. And parents usually has the "unique" reference behind the names. For example my name, Griffin, is from English footballer Andy Griffin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Griffin). My mom found it when she was reading a sport newspaper :lol:, unaware about the mythological creature.

 

My sister has got 3 Gabriellas in her class and all of their parents said that they are inspired from Gabriella Sabatini :lol:

 

Oh, Andrea is also used for males here :lol:

Interesting info. I didn't know that "García" either meant "bear" or "young"

 

I didn't either, and I speak basque....

And about Andrea, it's used for womens here because literally means WOMAN (but like in a polite way, more like lady) in basque.

But also in whole Spain is used for women, like Andrea Blas (waterpolo silver medallist in London)

for guys Jan (John), Piotr (Peter), Michał (Michael), Krzysztof (Christopher), Tomasz (Tom), Jacek (Jack)

 

for girls Anna, Maria, Katarzyna (Kate), Zofia, Małgorzata (Margaret), Agnieszka, Agata - i mean traditionally

 

but as Rybak written probably as reaction to tradition now other names are more "popular / fancy"
