Hello members!! My friend and I had a debate on how native speakers say their names. My friend said it was up to the speaker to whether to say the first name or last name first. But I disagreed. I think when we introduce ourselves or somebody, we always say the first name first, and then follow by last name. If my first name is Grace and last name is Smith. We'd say "My name is Grace Smith." If my wife's first name is Mary and last name is Green. We'd say "This is Mary Green. My wife." -However, my friend thinks we can say "Smith Grace" or "Green Mary in these cases if we want. I think it's wrong and we don't say it like that. The only situation I could think of it's, when it's a book cover, we might put the last name first, but there has to be a comma before that. Like, if the author's first name is John and last name is Brown. We should write either "John Brown" or "Brown, John". Though stating the last name first is still unusual. But, we have to say "This book is by John Brown." NOT Brown John. Do you agree or disagree? Is there any way we might say the last name first? Please tell me what you think. Thanks so much!
