Few years ago someone told me that I should write my first and last name when signing contracts or filling any form (right in that order). It was obvious for me for all those years. But I must be aware that it’s not true in every country. How with others?
In every application, that store user data, you have “name” field. It’s often divided into first and last name. Such architecture helps with sorting (using last name) and it’s convenient for programmers (we LOVE tables, don’t we?). I’ll try to answer question: is first/last name good global design choice? What would be user experience all over the world? Do everybody have last name?
