With Romanian names it is hard to tell which is the given and which the family name. Most names - for example Gheorghe or Radu - can be either. Before Communism, the writing order was firstname lastname, then it was changed to lastname first for 40 years, and now it is switching back again. So what we have now is a complete mix-up.
