In my country, Myanmar, the people have not a surname. Instead of surname, we put "Maung" and "Ma" before our name. If you are a guy and your name is Jame, we will call "Mg(Maung) Jame". And if you are a girl and your name is Amelia, we will call you "Ma Amelia". If you are a man we will put "U(Oo)" and if you are a woman we will put "Daw" before your name.

There are many differences in writing name-surname, depending on countries. I did not know this information about your country.

In your country, do people put their surname first or at the end?

In my country usually people put their surname first. But for me i prefer to put my surname at the end. i don't know if it's a right or wrong method to write an business cards.
