Abi Amin Mahayadin and Nor Faridah Abdul Rahim, a married couple from Kedah named their six-year-old son and one-year-old daughter after local fruits

The names were given by Abi Amin's grandfather.

“My grandfather wanted to name his great-grandchildren. Out of respect, we went along with his wishes. We were made to understand that the names have their own special meanings,” he told New Straits Times.

“We believe there are hidden meanings to the names as they are spelt differently from the fruits,” he added.

The names of Muhammad Dhury Yan (after Durian) and Nur Rambutt'an (after rambutan) have since gone viral

The couple recently had their third child last month and are still waiting for a name.

Both parents were shocked to find out that pictures of the children's MyKid cards went viral
