About Vietnamese Name

Like some countries which have relations to Chinese culture, surname comes first in a full Vietnamese personal name. However, a difference from other countries is people never address a Vietnamese person by their surname even in formal situations, due to the fact that the "Nguyễn" surname alone is accounted for 40% of the people.

For expample, "Nguyễn Mạnh Hùng": "Nguyễn" is the surname, "Mạnh" is the middle name, "Hùng" is the first name.
- The borderline between the middle name and the first name is usually blurred. Even in official documents, it is common to see the first name is "Mạnh Hùng".
- In informal situations: "Hùng" or (less common, a bit less informal) "Mạnh Hùng"
- In formal situations: "Mr. Hùng" or (less common, a bit more formal) "Mr. Mạnh Hùng"

However, in the process of communicating with foreign people, some people write their names in reversed order and/or use English/Western nicknames. E.g. I sometimes input in my internet profile as "Hùng Nguyễn", "Williams Nguyễn", or "Williams Hùng Nguyễn"... Westerne order is also common for overseas Vietnamese.

Quick Tips:

  • If there is an English/Western nickname at the beginning of someone's full name, they expect you to call them by that nickname.
  • If someone's full name is written in only 2 words ("Minh Nguyễn"), especially when combining with the extremely common surnames ("Nguyễn", "Trần", "Lê"), then for 90% of the cases, the first word ("Minh") is the first name.
  • A common practice: a surname is written in UPPERCASE.
