Some people prefer to be called by their middle names instead of their first names, but afaik no one says their full names middle name-first name instead of the normal first name-middle name.
Some cultures write their family names first. For example, my given name is Miranda and my family name (aka "surname" or "last name") is Jackson. In Western culture, I write my name Miranda Jackson. But if I were in Japan, I would write my name Jackson Miranda.
