Names in the region where the story, Umbo Job Mum, takes place and in may others is a three-part nomenclature: The first name is the personal name and is the next available name on a list maintained by the civil authorities of the "county" where the person is born. The second name is a 3-letter name chosen by the person's parents. The third name is the 3-letter name of the "state" where the person is born and serves as what we would consider the "family" name.
