(RepublicanPress.org) – A lot of strange stories have emerged surrounding COVID-19 vaccinations. However, the story of a 12-year-old boy’s effort to get vaccinated is one for the record books.
The pre-teen arrived at a medical clinic in the Muara Enim district of South Sumatra on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. As one might expect, officials asked to see his identification before vaccinating him. To their surprise, his name read ABCDEF GHIJK Zuzu.

Thinking they were the target of some kind of hoax or a practical joke, they stopped everything and reached out to the boy’s father to find out what in the world was happening. As it turned out, the boy’s father, Zulfahmi, confirmed that ABCDEF GHIJK Zuzu was his legal name.
According to Zulfahmi, he decided on the name because he always wanted to be a writer and thought it appropriate under the circumstances. He also told the clinic workers he loved playing crossword puzzles. Then, turning his attention back to his son, he said he usually goes by “Adef” for short.
The final portion of the boy’s name, Zuzu, originated from a combined version of Zulfahmi’s name and that of the Adef’s mother, Zuhro. Although he will probably have many more encounters like that, it’s cool that he has such an original name!
What’s the strangest name you have ever come across?
