Balinese Names

Balinese like to name their children by the birth order, forget real names ( it’s a little like the American Jnr) in our culture but a little more complex.  They go through fourth born and then just start again at first.  So everyone shares names.  So don’t shout out Wayan in the street, every one will come running…..

Doesn’t matter whether your born boy or girl  first Born Wayan, second born Made, third born Nyoman, and the Baby Ketut.

Over 4 million people live in bali with 12 languages spoken.
