    Order of Names

    Hello! I am very new at learning Russian, and my question is:
    What is the normal order of names in Russian? Is the surname first, as it is in Asia, or last, as is Western countries?

    It depends on which of three possible names you want to use!

    First name, patronymic, surname
    Владимир Владиморович Путин

    or first name, patronymic
    Владимир Владимирович

    or first name, last name
    Владимир Путин


    And if it is put on paper (as a roster) then the surname comes first, followed by first name and, often a patronymic as well.
    Путин Владимир Владимирович
