Before you break out into the chorus of I Want It That Way, there's actually a really special reason why a 23-year-old girl in Indonesia is known officially as 'Y'. 


According to local news platform Kumparan, Y was initially meant to be named 'Dasih Utami' but as her father was registering her name, he decided he wanted something shorter.


Y, or Ya, is the last letter in the Jawi alphabet, which the 57-year-old explained meant 'perfection'.


While she's never been bullied for her name, Y does encounter difficulties with the school's administrative systems sometimes.


But if anything, one may argue it's better than being named 'X A-12'.
