Being born and living in Paris, I dare say "Depriane" is certainly not a French name.
Sine eb is replying to a message posted by Olga S. Opfell on 30 March 2002 asking where Megawati Sukarnoputri would be found in an encyclopedia, I just wanted to point out that Sukarnoputri is not Megawati's surname but jus the second part of her personal name. Javanese (and Soekarno, Megawati's father, was half Javanese) seem to refuse to adopt a system that would allow to identify people through a family name. They have their personal name and that is it. Whether it is practical in modern life is another issue...
