whats in a name?

the woman’s name is zhang ziyi and not ziyi zhang. the english speaking world has this patronising habit of switching around the names of people who are not born in the so called western part of the world.

are we being homogenised by these people? how would they like it if we call them pitt brad, connery sean or bush george?
