The parents are Andi Cahya Saputra and Ella Karina from Rawalumbu, Bekasi which is located in West Java. Their child Google was born on Nov. 30, 2008, and he is the couple’s second child.

Andi said that back when his wife was seven months pregnant, he already thought of naming their second child after a well-renowned tech firm, including Microsoft, Windows, iPhone, and more.

He said the main reason why he named their second child after the Mountain View-based firm is that he wants their child to be as useful as the world’s most popular search engine firm. His husband, however, was not in favor of his idea.

Upon giving birth, they were skeptical to tell other people about their second baby’s name. In fact, when friends and family asked their baby’s name, they would answer, “It’s a boy.”

After three months, however, words began to spread. And, the news reached Google Indonesia.

As such, the firm managed to send the couple and baby gift surprises.

One day, a motorcycle taxi driver delivered a few gifts directly to Ella and Andi’s home. After that, they immediately received a call from the tech giant to congratulate them on their new baby and to pray for the child’s wellbeing. One of the gifts the company sent to the couple includes a blue Google jumper.
