Few years ago I was a personal banker at a bank. I noticed quite a few immigrants, mostly Bangladeshi, had the first name Fnu on their passports. I had never heard of that name. Found out that it meant First Name Unknown. When they came here and only gave one name, the immigration officer put FNU.

Interesting!

My neighbor's first name is XXX since he only has a last name.

That's what Canada record for people with one name. The system is driven by surname.
