Online Help: Titles and Name Orders
For sake of simplicity, the STACS software supports only the titles
Mr./Ms./Mrs., Prof., and Dr., not
combinations (e.g., Prof. Dr. Dr.) or variations
(e.g., Dr. h.c. mult.) thereof. Please use the
highest appropriate title.
In Europe and the USA, names of persons usually consist of the given name(s)
followed by the family name; e.g., the German actress Nastassja
Kinski is the daughter of the actor Klaus Kinski.
This doesn't hold for all cultures, however; most East Asian
cultures have the family name precede the given names. For
example, the North Korean leaders Kim Dae Jung and
Kim Jong Il are father and son.
(If anyone knows a sufficiently famous and less touchy example
for the latter case, PLEASE!!!, drop me a line.)
