Japan Asks MediaTo Say Leader's Name Correctly: "Abe Shinzo", Not "Shinzo Abe"

CNN reports Japan has a polite request for the world: Stop saying our names wrong.

In Japanese, people are referred to by their family name first, followed by a given name, the same pattern as used by Chinese and Korean.

For almost a century and a half, however, Japanese names have been written in English the opposite way round, with the given name first.

This practice was adopted during the Meiji Era as a part of broader attempts at internationalization and has now become standard.
