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"

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

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
