Indonesian name

I am always struck by the fact that every Indonesian newspaper is filled with Indonesian names. And each name seems to reveal something about the background of the person named. Such a lot of effort goes into choosing names for children, and books about names in Indonesia were an increasing phenomenon in the 1990s. If an Indonesian looks at a list of names of people who will attend a meeting, for example, and the list contains the following names:
Agus Supriyanto Putu Kompiang, Dadang,
Mulya Lubis, Chaniago Bobby Setiawan -
then the Indonesian reader will already have a certain set of information or predispositions about the people involved. But it takes the foreigner years to build up any sort of familiarity with the information coded into these names. So I have summarised below some preliminary information I have drawn together, about some of the sorts of names met with in Indonesia. these provide a fascinating basis for weaving into classroom teaching

2.1. Balinese names:

a. Ranking by birth:
1. Gede, Wayan, Putu, Iluh (perempuan)
2. Made, Kadek
3. Nyoman, Komang
4. Ketut.

Then start over again, for 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th child, then start again for the 9th.

b. Names associated with caste:
Information from:
Brahmana: (High Priests & Religious) Men addressed as Ida Bagus Women addressed as Ida Ayu or Dayu (shortening).
Satria: (Descendants of warriors or rulers) Variable depending on the family. Male names can begin with: Cokorda Gede, Cockorda, Anak Agung, Dewa, Dewa Agung, Ratu, Tjokorde, or Prebagus. Female names can begin with: Dewa Ayu, Anak Agung istri, or Tjokorde istri. An example: Dewa Gede Putu: Dewa is the title, Gede is an honorary prefix meaning great, and Putu denotes first born.
Wesia: (Administrators, Merchants, economist class) Male names begin with Gusti or Dewa(Overlap with Satria class) Female names begin with I Gusti Ayu or Desak. Group names are also important to this class an example is the Arya descended from Raja.
Saudra: (Lower Class) 90% of population adopt the 4 name roundabout naming system described above. These names are prefixed with either 'I' for males or 'Ni' for females. Under the old system it is the Sudra's duty to labour for the three upper classes
