An eccentric dad has named his child after the alphabet — because he wanted to honour his life's passion.

Local media reports that health officials thought they were the target of a practical joke when the boy, now aged 12, showed his ID at a clinic in Muara Enim district, South Sumatra to receive a Covid vaccine.

After calling his parents, however, they discovered that it was in fact his true identity, potentially making him one of the only people in the world with the moniker.

His name reads: ABCDEF GHIJK Zuzu.

The dad, Zulfahmi Zuzu, said that he gave the boy the name because he had always dreamed of being a writer, and added that the child normally goes by the shortened name of 'Adef'.

He told the Indonesian news site Detik: “I prepared the name for 6 years before he was born,”

“The idea came from when I wanted to be a writer. Until now, I still love to write"

The Indian Express reports that the father also wanted to give a unique name to his two other boys, and had prepared the name NOPQ RSTUV for the second child, and XYZ for the third.

He instead opted for the more standard names of Ammar and Attur.

Last month, Twitter users flocked together to share the most shocking and hilarious names they’ve ever heard — and they did not disappoint.

Among the uncommon names were Kingslayer, Khaleesi, Diesel Duramax, Psamantha and Crystal Shining Waters.

One post said: "My coworker named her baby 'Strawberry Rain.' Which would be a great baby name, if she had given birth to a bottle of shampoo."

Another commented: "My kids used to have friends in school whose names were Neptune, Galaxy, and Uranus. All girls.

“Their parents were astronomers. Poor Uranus got it the worst."
