Famous Name Sultan
Sultan Iskandar of Johor
in Johor Bahru was the eighth Yang di-Pertuan Agong (roughly equivalent to King) of Malaysia from April 26, 1984 to April 25, 1989, and fourth Sultan of Johor.The eldest son of Sultan Ismail ibni Almarhum Sultan Ibrahim by Sultanah Ungku Tun Aminah binti Ungku Paduka Bena Sri Maharaja Utama Ahmad, the prince was named Tunku Mahmood Iskandar. However, popular belief was that as all other Sultans of Johor with the name "Mahmood" met with an uneasy end, he dropped his first name upon succeeding his father on May 10, 1981. In reality, since the reign of Sultan Ibrahim, the official royal emblem was a monogram with the letters 'S' & 'I' denoting his name ' Sultan Ibrahim' of which all of the eldest sons in the royal family was to have a name starting with the initial 'I' and thus Sultan Iskandar retained the monogram during his reign. This is also followed by the current 'Tunku Mahkota' or crown prince Tunku Ibrahim Ismail and his eldest son Tunku Ismail, the Raja Muda or the third in-line to the throne.
