: Damasuren is probably an Indonesian (or that language group, Malay) name and not necessarily having to do w/the Chinese name at all. As I mentioned b/4 in Thailand and Indonesia, Chinese are not allowed to use their own names, but MUST have a Thai or Indonesian surname.
No, it doesn't sounds Indonesian at all; at least not in any of the Indonesian dialects I know. I could be wrong though, as many people chose weird names when the Chinese changed their names to "local sounding" names.
