    Just like Morten Frost Hansen => Morten Frost
    or Paul-Erick Hoyer Larsen => Paul-Erick Hoyer
    or Martin Lundgaard Hansen => Martin Lundgaard

    Maybe the question was more about what the Gade part of the name is/means.

    A little googling makes me think Gade might derive from the place/region he was born
    i.e. Peter from Gade, son of Christen

    and Poul-Erik Hoyer Larsen
    might be Poul-Erik from Hoyer, son of Lars


    see www.mydanishroots.com
    A sub-group of the habitation names are those surnames that derive from the name of a farmstead, which often was owned by the family at the time when the surname was taken/formed.
    e.g.
    Damgaard (Daniel Damgaard Petersen)
    Kirkegaard (Helene Kirkegaard)
    Lundgaard (Michael Lundgaard Hansen)
    Sogaard (Michael Sogaard)


    A small sub-group of surnames are those that refer to a season, the weather or Christian festivals. No explanation to these names has been proven conclusively, but they may refer to the person’s birth, a special event or even to the character of the first bearer.

    i know a numbers of western friends. their name like for example. anthony ian dickson.
    anthony-my friend's name. ian-anthony's father. dickson-family name. some of my friends even has grandfather's name in between.
    but every one just simply call his full name as anthony dickson. not anthony ian.
    so, which would be more appropriate? first and middle name or first and last name?

    if you do not know the person, then first and last name.
    if you do know the person, then whatever their preference is.

    I've known some people who didn't like their first name, so they only used their middle name + last name.

    My middle name is the same as one of uncles, my sister's is from our grandmother. You might even find people with multiple middle names which are father and grandfather. Maybe father + mother's father so both sides of the family are represented.

    You're pretty close, Neil. However, "gade" is not geographical location, although Gade is indeed a "place name". "Gade" means "street" in Danish -- in other words it is a name for somebody that lives by a street or road, just as Lund is a name for somebody that lives near a grove.

    Of course, today these names are inherited. I think this change took place a couple of hundred years ago. In other words, a person called Peter Gade Chistensen today did NOT use to live near a street or road, and he is probably NOT the son of Christen (or Christian). However, at some point, one of his ancestors WAS called Christen (or Christian) and lived near a street or a road somewhere.

    This also explains how Tine Rasmussen can be "the son or Rasmus". She is not (obviously), but one of her ancestors was.

    I saw in my searching that the Danish government made it law in 1828 (and 1856) that everyone had to take permanent family names

    I wasn't aware the Danes actually passed a law on that. But in Iceland, the patronymic naming system is still very much alive, with the -son and -dottir (daughter) suffixes. And although uncommon, "place names" are still used in some parts of Sweden (mainly in the Dalarna area).

    Well, I know for english or french names there is the family name (from the father, though nowadays you can also choose to take the mother's or both with a "-" between), and you can have one or several first names (one main one plus the other(s)) which are freely chosen by the parents.

    Anyway, in everyday life only the main first name is used.

    Well you know Kaká? His REAL name is Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite... but his brother used to call him Kaká, which is a nickname.
    I think many Brazilian / Portuguese footie players use nicknames...

    Yeah, so as the Spanish players. Remember that these two countries occupied some countries in South America before. That's why.

    I surely know who is Kaká. He is one of the most famous player in Italian football league namely Serie A. Dida Nelson de Jesus also same...

    Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite. So, dos Santos Leite is the family name?? and Ricardo Izecson is the given name...?? I don't know about this.. but I guess so.

    Look at another name, full name of the Real Madrid Portuguese player:
    Luis Felipe Madeira Caeiro Figo
    this name is so long!!!
