    Dear foreros,

    what's the name-surname order in Amharic?

    Almost in all the world, the famous Ethiopian runner is called Abebe Bikila and the Spanish version of wikipedia informs us that his brother, another runner, was called Albalonga Bikila. BUT, the Italian version of wikipedia tells that "Bikila" is the name and, well, his brother had the same name but not the same surname?

    So, I'd be grateful of your help.
