Philippine Name
In the Philippines
Philippines
, varying naming customs are observed, whether it is given name first, family name last, a mixture of native conventions with those of neighbouring territories, etc. The most common iteration amongst Filipinos is a blend of the older Spanish system and Anglo-American conventions, where there is a distinction between the "Christian name" from "surname". The construct of having several names in the middle name convention is common to all systems, but to have multiple "first" names and only one middle and last name is a result of the blending of American and Spanish naming customs. The Tagalog language is one of the few national languages in Asia to use the Western name order. Thus, the Philippine naming custom is coincidentally identical to the Portuguese name customs. For the most part, most Filipinos abide by the Spanish system of using both paternal and maternal surnames, the latter constituting the "middle name". An example would be _Jose Cuyegkeng y Mangahas_ becoming _Jose Mangahas Cuyegkeng_, where the particle _Y_ is used only for legal purposes and is otherwise dropped. The middle name in its natural sense would have been the second name if the person had one, but is never counted as an individual's given name. Filipinos tend to be people with middle names and surnames

Middle Name
In several cultures, people's names usually include one or more names in addition to the portion that is usually considered adequate to identify them. In a number of cultures where a given name is expected to precede the surname , such a name is likely to be placed after the given name and before the surname , and thus called a MIDDLE NAME. In English-speaking American culture, that term is often applied (arguably mistakenly) to names, occupying that position, even if the bearer would insist that that name is being mistakenly called a "middle name", and is actually (to mention several types of atypical cases): * part of a two-word given name (e.g. Mary Anne , about Mary Anne Clarke , and " Joe Bob Briggs "), * a maiden name (e.g. Rodham
Rodham
), * a patronymic (e.g. Sergeyevich ), or * a baptismal name (e.g. "Christopher" invoking St. Christopher ).In the USA such names are specifically referred to as MIDDLE NAMES; in most other countries, as far as they are given names and not, for example, patronymics , they would simply be regarded as second, third etc. given names. The US "middle name" is often abbreviated to the MIDDLE INITIAL (e.g. Mary Lee Bianchi becomes Mary L. Bianchi, which is usually standard for signatures ) or omitted entirely in everyday use (e.g. just Mary Bianchi). An individual may have more than one middle name, or none

Surname
A SURNAME or FAMILY NAME is a name added to a given name . In many cases, a surname is a family name and many dictionaries define "surname" as a synonym of "family name". In the English-speaking world , it is commonly synonymous with LAST NAME because it is usually placed at the end of a person's full name, after any given names. In most Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking countries, two or more surnames may be used. In Hungary , Hong Kong , Cambodia , China , Japan , Korea , Madagascar , Taiwan , Vietnam , and parts of India , the family name is placed _before_ a person's given name. The concept of a "surname" is a relatively recent historical development, evolving from a medieval naming practice called a "byname ". Based on an individual's occupation or area of residence, a byname would be used in situations where more than one person had the same name. A family name is typically a part of a person's personal name which, according to law or custom, is passed or given to children from one or both of their parents' family names. The use of family names is common in most cultures around the world, with each culture having its own rules as to how these names are formed, passed and used. However, the style of having both a family name (surname) and a given name (forename) is far from universal

Incumbent
The INCUMBENT is the current holder of a political office . This term is usually used in reference to elections , in which races can often be defined as being between an incumbent and non-incumbent(s). For example, in the 2012 United States presidential election , Barack Obama was the incumbent, because he had been the president in the previous term while the election sought to determine the president for the current term.
