121 Indonesian Baby Names With Meanings

Still, can’t decide on a baby name? How about picking an Indonesian name for your child?

Indonesia is a thriving country with hundreds of linguistic and ethnic groups. This sovereign state, consisting of over 18000 islands, is home to over 700 indigenous languages. But to understand Indonesian baby names, you first need to know where they come from.

Indonesian names reflect the rich culture and heritage of the country. The naming conventions of Indonesians reflect the polyglot nature of the country. Indonesians do not follow the Western naming practice of a given name, followed by the family name. Most of the parents pick only one name for their children, which is culturally or geographically specific. For example, names ending with ‘o’ are Japanese and names beginning with ‘Su’ are Sumatran. Names with origins in Kawi, Arabic, and Sanskrit, are preferred by modern parents.
