When someone asks for your ``name``, do you tell them your first name or your surname?
Unless it`s with friends I always give my last name (thinking ``well it`s somewhat formal``) but that seems to be unusual.

I give them the first part of my first name. And then eventually figure out the rest.

I also just give the beginning of my first name and then trail off as I walk away.

First name. It seems strange giving someone a last name. I feel safer only giving first name too.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 7/23/15 - 3:34:44 AM EST (GMT-5)
i just tell them my yt handle
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 7/23/15 - 8:03:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
My first name.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 7/24/15 - 5:43:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
I tend to give out my middle name to complete strangers.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 7/24/15 - 6:41:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
I struggle to remember and tell them I forgot my name long ago, in a somber voice. That usually scares them off
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 7/24/15 - 6:43:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
First name. If they're writing it down, I spell it out like five times and they almost always misspell it anyway and have to rewrite it.

That will do it.

You could try a line that some older kids used when I was little and asked them their name. "I don't have a name."

First name because I'm not James Bond.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 7/25/15 - 4:09:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
Or you could just use the classic "I'm the batman"

I never cared much for my first name (Ben), but I still would give my first name not my surname - that would be cheating.

sometimes i was referred to as my last name in high school, since several people in class were also named john (with different spellings, mine is jon)
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 7/28/15 - 5:17:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
First name. I avoid giving my surname because it just causes more problems because I end up having to spell it.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 7/29/15 - 12:39:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
It depends on who is asking and why. If it's a random person on the street/in public then I give them a fake first name.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 7/29/15 - 5:49:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hmm...good question...I say my first because my last is super super long ;-P
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 7/30/15 - 5:33:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
First name.

You beat me to it.

Neither.

I go with Bob, my nickname.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 8/3/15 - 9:49:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
I tell them my name is Glenda.
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/4/15 - 6:16:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
My surname is "de Cock," so I stick with my first name
2 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/4/15 - 7:12:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
lol, cock

Yeah, middle and high school were always fun during roll call.

I prefer "Yer Honor"
