In Russia, in all official documents name is written:
Family_Name First_Name Middle_Name
So, my full name would be:
Smirnov Andrey Andreevich
In short form, we usually put first name in head of family name (surname):
This feels less official.
So, it's sometimes hard to find out what is what if you don't know
Russian names well.
