dpkg -L locales on a Debian system...:-)...or "ls /usr/share/i18n/locales"

Of course, I know you're using another OS....but you can ask your son
if I remember correctly.

The only Vietnamese locale in Debian is vi_VN

Though technically nothing prohibits a locale to be named with a
language code only, nearly all locales in Debian are xx_YY,
optionnally with modifiers such as "@euro", or charset mention when a
given locale has more than 1 charset variation.

The only locale using the ISO-639 code is the Esperanto locale.
