This name generator gives you 15 random names for 5 different sub-cultures in Indonesia. In Indonesia, there are over 60 different ethnic groups, most of whom have their own customs and names, but most of whom are too small to cover with a name generator. This generator includes Indonesian general names, Chinese-Indonesian names, Moloccan (and Papua names), Batak and Nias (Sumatran) names and Javanese names. There are differences of various ethnic groups, but the generator uses two names with a scheme of surnames. Every version is produced in this way. The next two names are Chinese-Indonesian. The Chinese-Indonesians had to change their names in addition to short-term history to facilitate assimilation. Many Chinese-Indonesians have selected an Indonesian name based on Chinese surnames. The generator's first names are both Chinese. The next 2 names are mostly Moluccan names, even though the names of Papua are very similar, but with less Dutch influences. The Netherlands controlled the Moluccas for decades. Those who have Netherlands names or other relationships have many benefits, which is why many Moluccans prefer the name and/or surname of the Netherlands. The next two names are Batak and Nias, one of the few ethnic groups that use surnames. Islam also has a good deal of impact on modern names, so in this section you will find a mixture of Dutch, Muslim and Indonesian names. Typically their first names are Biblical. The last two names are Javanese. However, for each gender, there are only a few dozen names. Despite the fact that it constitutes 40 percent of its population, we could not find many (reliable) sources with names. The Balinese use a special method in which their children are named. The first-born are named 'Wayan,' 'Gede,' or 'Putu,' the second-born, 'Made,' or 'Kadek,' the third, 'Nyoman or Comang,' and the fourth, 'Ketut,' respectively. Fifth children begin with first-born names and so on. This is a brief generalization since there are many differences depending on the caste. There are other names, usually nicknames, in Balinese, but unfortunately I was unable to find lists of names or generator examples.

Indonesia is one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world. It includes the islands of Java, Sumatra, and parts of Malaysia. The Indonesian language is widely spoken in most Indonesian communities, where most speakers speak a local dialect (examples are Indonesian Minangkabau, Javanese, and other local languages) at home and in the community. Most official education, including almost all international media and most social communication, are in English. However, Indonesian is also used widely in non-official and informal contexts, especially in business and government circles. The official language has been a major influence in the naming of Indonesia, which includes the national capital Jakarta, and many regions such as North Sumatra and Aceh.
Jawa, or Javanese, is the most common Indonesian name for the language. Jawa and Indonesian have some striking similarities, such as the use of "jawa" to mean a man of the jungle. Jawa can also be translated as "the forest," "jawa men," or "people of the forest." These three meanings refer to people whose culture and language share strong influences from the forests of Indonesia.
Some other Indonesian names for Javanese are also similar. These names refer to Indonesian dialects that are commonly found in Indonesian villages and towns, like Bali, Langkawi, or Makassar. Others refer to the main city of Bali, which is Indonesia's largest city, and where Indonesian is the official language. In fact, the city of Langkawi, also known as Langku, is the second most popular place in Indonesia for Indonesian names. While most Indonesian names are actually related to Indonesian dialects, the use of a native tongue for an Indonesian name may have been common in the past. Today, however, Javanese and Indonesian are often treated as separate languages in Indonesia, and there are no clear distinctions in names between Javanese and Indonesian.
