Foremost there is a huge difference between the Chinese names and the western names relating to the order of the given name and the family name.
While in the Chinese name the first preference is given to the family name, which is followed by the given name, like Hu Jintao.
In the Chinese culture utmost importance is given to ancestors and family and hence they pay respect to their ancestors by placing the family name ahead of the given name.

  Jordan: Chinese Personal Names
Chinese biographical dictionaries and other reference books tend to list people by their xìng and míngzi, but they are normally also quite meticulous in recording the zì of the people they write about, and various hào if they were much used.

Traditional naming schemes often followed a pattern of using generation names as part of a two-character given name; however, this is less used today, especially in the mainland of the People's Republic of China, where many given names use only one character.

 Chinese style name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The zì, sometimes called the biǎozì or 'courtesy name', is a name traditionally given to Chinese males at the age of 20, marking their coming of age.
Thus, the given name was reserved for oneself and one's elders, while the zì would be used by adults of the same generation to refer to one another on formal occasions or in writing; hence the term 'courtesy name'.
Thus Confucius, whose Chinese name was Kong Qiu, who was the second son in his family, was given the zì Zhòngní (仲尼), where the first character zhòng indicates that he was the second brother.

 Naming Your Baby In Chinese
Actually, since Chinese have their surnames first and their given names second, the middle position makes sense: the Chinese given name of your adoptee is always second, whether you read it the English way or the Chinese way.
So the child's name could be Meigui, pronounced "may-gway", a beautiful, charming name ("gui" means extraordinary or admirable, but its use with mei2 to make mei2-gui4 is mainly to differentiate it from another mei2 that means plum; it is the easiest way in spoken Chinese to distinguish the two mei2's).

I highlight these names because these names utilise a format that is quite unique to this part of the world and individuals with this name format may face difficulties when dealing with various authorities in the West especially if they are confronted with staffs who are very familiar with this name format.
Typical Chinese Name Format with Surname First is actually quite well known but a Surname that occurs in the middle of a strings of name may seem to be a novelty to inexperienced officials.
In Malaysia and Singapore as well as Brunei this name format is not an issue because official forms do not have differentiated field for Surname and Given Names but this name format does have immigration implication as regards to immigration to the WEST and Airline Tickets.

The full name of a Han Chinese is composed of two parts: the surname and the given name, while the opposite of the arrangement of names is widely practiced in many other countries outside Asia.
A full Chinese name always has two or three characters, but can also have four if there is both a compound surname and two-syllable given name.
The Chinese have had surnames long before the period of the Three Emperors and Five Kings (21st century BC), that is, during the time when recognition was given only to one's mother and not one's father.

 Seoul Changes Chinese Name
Chinese and Korean should remain brothers as we always were in the last two thousand years and don't let a small thing like changing a name of a city affect us.
I thought the request from South Korea to change the name was odd, citing Chinese names for foreign places are as close phonetically as possible to the cities' names in the native languages elsewhere, but not in the Korean case.
It is by all means the Chinese's right to call something whatever name they want to call it by, this is their right to use their language.After all, I am sure the Koreans don't call China exactly "Zhong Guo".
