Fiji - Personal names

image

Indigenous Fijians often have no family name. Where they do it may be derived from the father's traditional given name. Most have two given names, one a Christian name and one a traditional name. It is not unusual for Fijians to use different names at different stages in their life. Indo-Fijians often follow the name conventions used in the Indian sub-continent, and generally do use family names.

Tables of names can be acquired: given names External, surnames/family names External, family name prefixes External, forms of address External, job titles External
