Hi. I'm new here. So, Western is not so homogeneous. In Brazil, we use the first name, generally. Surname is more formal. You know, latins are more relaxed people.

In Western world, the surname is normally being used to address a person, contrary to in most Asians, where we address a person with their own name. Therefore, Roger Federer is more well known as Federer (his surname).
