It is out of great respect for the Vietnamese people that I offer these links first - I only wish my first encounter with Vietnam would have been under more peaceful means. The modesty and humility of the Vietnames people demands great respect even in times of war - and even more-so in times of Peace!
Communicating with Vietnamese people
"The Vietnamese people value modesty and humility as well as harmonious relations with others. Seeking to avoid conflict in relationships, they often prefer to speak about sensitive subjects indirectly. Traditionally, Vietnamese people list their family name first, then their middle name, with their first (given) name listed as last. Family members use different given names (first names aren't passed down), and the name reflects some meaning. Some names can be used for either gender."
