Indexing Asian names

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1989), 16, (3), 156–158.

Abstract

In Western countries, a person’s name will start with the given name and end with the surname. The components of Asian names may be chosen and put together in very different ways that vary widely from one region to another. What principles should an indexer follow? No fixed rules can be laid down, but names from different Asian cultures are analysed and general guidance is offered.
