A man in Indonesia has made the rather unusual decision to name his newborn son after his workplace.
Picking a name for your child can be a challenge, however most parents will at least make an effort to chose something sensible and that won't bring unwanted negative attention to their offspring.
These sentiments seem to be lost on Samet Wahyudi, however, who had long remained adamant that if he ever had a son, he would name him after his workplace.
He even made this clear to his girlfriend before they were married and she agreed to his terms.
When she eventually did give birth to a baby boy in December of last year, therefore, the happy couple ultimately named the child 'Statistical Information Communication Office'.
It isn't clear exactly how Statistical ( or Mr Communication Office ? ) is likely to react in later life upon realizing the absurdity of this moniker, however it has certainly captured the attention of the media.
At least his parents have also chosen a shorter nickname for him - Dinko.
Whether or not he'll end up getting his name changed in the future however remains to be seen.
