Abstract

Since the Filipinos and the Indonesians descend from the same ancestors and share the early historical and cultural background, this paper compared and contrasted the two countries’ naming systems through their review, realignment, and decolonization for the purpose of heightening their indigenous Malay identity. Using hermeneutical phenomenology, the researchers engaged in the review of related literature and applied the extracted ideas to the existing names in due consideration of the historical facts and evident cultural patterns. Discussions yielded the following results and recommendations: the present names of the two countries have colonial underpinnings; during the pre-colonial periods, these two groups of people had the same mononymic naming system based on the same language parent-stock, but different colonial policies and succession of religious preferences caused their names to evolve; and there are specific slices in the systems that need realignment and decolonization which are posited in the recommendations.
