Assuming everyone has a first and a last name is old world thinking, and is not current best practice.

@clintonroy correct, but since this is a tutorial I think keeping the assumption is okey. Someone else could argue that we need a middle name.
However, If you have a good replacement for the example, that would be great.

I remarked on that too, thanks for bringing it up. Indeed this works for the US and a lot of Western countries but is really not universal.

I don't know if swapping out the example completely is a good idea, I think we should try and introduce people to those notions before they build websites that only work for Americans.
