Generally in Bangladesh, we don't have any surname. Our tradition is somewhat different from other countries. The last part of our name is actually nickname by which everyone calls us. Some people's nickname are shown at the front place of their name as well. Without nickname we just use our rest of the naming part as formal name. We use those names only in the official documents. Otherwise, we only refer to nickname everywhere.

Surname is the name that you share with people in your family. In Vietnam, people put their surname at the beginning of the full name which means surname appears first.

In my country we put our name first when we write it or when we say it, but in some official documents we have our names written at the end and the last-name first.

Thanks for the episode.
Great site!
