  This in fact a good question, relating to the question of international
features, as the order of the given and family names may vary between
cultures. Thus, a Chinese named "Albert Einstein" probably has "Albert" as
family name. (Never mind the unlikely example, if I'd use "Foo Bar", I
might be blamed racist. :-) )
