Well, (Gary said, ddeliberately changing the ^Subject:),
interesting. My mother's parents are from Hungary, two of my
dad's grandparents from Germany.
Didn't know about Hungary (or Japan). China, yes. Anybody
on this geek list know any other societies where the surname
is traditionally presented first and the given name last?
PS: So long as no one calls me a 'primitive f*ckhead', I answer
to just about anything:)
