First name last name, or last name first name?

Post by Quenlin » Tue Sep 07, 2010 5:21 pm

Just curious what you prefer, personally, I just do First Name Last Name in the western order.

I think the poll on the forums are broken. I can't vote in this one, either.

However, I do First Name - Last Name. =D

I only keep Last Name-First Name order if the character has some sort of "pun" in their name - like Noda Megumi "Nodame" or "Usa Mimi". Since this is an English-orientated site, I tend to keep First Name-Last Name order.

Well I don't care if the site is English based. I keep it the original way, Last name-First-name if the name is Japanese (well I say my own name in that order and it's not a Japanese one lol).
Dunno .... but saying some Japanese names in First-name Last-name order is really weird. For me at least... for example.... Gakupo Kamui .... urgh.... sounds disturbing.... for me at least.

Last name - First name, at least for japanese names.
For names of other countries I tend to add the names as first name - last name.
Basically, what Tensa said.

I have same view as Tensa, I'm writing japanese names in respective order (last name - first name). Same goes for western names. I'm putting such strong emphasis on it that when I see image with japanese character with her/his name written in western order I'm seeing it as completely separate character.

I pretty much always write Japanese ones in Family Name Given Name order because that's just what seems more "right" to me.

I kind of favor Japanese style a tiny bit more. Though honestly I don't think I have a real preference. Most the time I write the names as I copy Pasta it~

If it's for Japanese (And possibly Chinese? I've no clue how their naming system works) names, last name-first name.
If it's for a name from any other country, first name-last name.

I use First Name Last Name, regardless of the character's nationality, and it'll be that way until there's a rule saying otherwise.

First name, last name, except for japanese.

For japanese, I choose the "baka" way: I'll just put the easiest-to-remember name in front and forget about the other one. -_-'
