Hi, I am From Indonesia, It is in South East Asia. My Name is Rafiuddin Rody and Rody is not my family name. Actually I do not have family name. Many Indonesians do not have family name.
Actually, some Indonesians do have family names, but not all of them. It all depends on their background.
For example family names in traditional Javanese and Sundanese (West Javanese) cultures are only used by royalties and noble families. The custom to give one's family name is not usual among Javanese commoners, in general they do not give much attention to one's parental lineage.
It is not uncommon for a Javanese to have only one word in their name, and even if they have more than one word in their name, it doesn't necessarily mean that the last word is their family name.
I am planning to continue my study in U.K and when I registered It's asked me to write my sure name which I don't have.
is It uncommon for you that someone doesn't have sure name?
