First there was Fussy Gotobed, now there’s Andy Go To School!
Indonesian police officer Andy Go To School was born on the island of Java. He’s the second of three boys.
The first boy arrived on the first day of 1979 and was named Happy New Year — a phrase his father had heard the English-speaking tourists using.
As a young boy, Happy New Year did not enjoy school. In fact, he’d often run away to avoid attending.
So when his brother was born in 1986, their father chose the name Andy Go To School, hoping that this second son would be a more diligent student than the first.
And we was one…though he frequently misbehaved. Perhaps because the other students often teased him, calling him “Andy Go To Hell.”
So when the third baby boy arrived in 1990, their father chose the name Rudi A Good Boy, hoping that this last son would be better behaved than the first two.
In his own family, Andy Go To School has continued the tradition of bestowing English words as names, calling his two sons Virgenio Silvero Goes To Paradise and Lucky Star Beloved Mother.

It’s been a while since I posted about babies born on airplanes (and named after that fact!). So here are
two three at once:
- Barbara Lufthansa – In July of 1965, a baby girl born on a Lufthansa flight from Germany to New York was named Barbara Lufthansa, middle name in honor of the airline.
- Shona Kirsty Yves (S.K.Y.) – In 1991, a baby girl born on a British Airways flight from Ghana to London was named Shona Kirsty Yves, the initials of her three given names spelling out the word “sky.”
- Saw Jet Star – In April of 2016, a baby boy born on a Jetstar Asia flight from Singapore to Myanmar was named Saw Jet Star, “Jet Star” in honor of the airline.
And here are some of the earlier airplane babies:
Do you know of any that I missed?
Tammy Martin was just seven months pregnant when she went into labor aboard Republic Airlines flight 586, en route from Phoenix to Detroit, on August 13, 1986.
She gave birth “on the cabin floor in the back of the plane” with the help of an obstetrician-gynecologist, a nurse, and a paramedic, all of whom happened to be passengers on the same flight.
What did she name the baby? James Good Hope Sky Martin, because he was born in the sky over Good Hope, Illinois.
