North Korea orders every other Kim Jong-un to change name

Anyone sharing the name of Kim Jong-un was urged to change it in a directive sent out by the North Korean regime almost four years ago, a report said.  

An internal state document obtained by South Korea's KBS TV station contained an "administrative order" from then-leader Kim Jong-il for all party, army and police officials to ensure the directive was carried out.  

The order was issued in January 2011, shortly after Kim Jong-un had been effectively anointed as the successor of his father, who died in December of that year.  

"All party organs and public security authorities should make a list of residents named Kim Jong-un ... and train them to voluntarily change their names," said the document, extracts of which were aired by KBS.  

The directive appeared to maintain an ongoing tradition by the reclusive state's Kim dynasty.
