The complete Turkish name
consists of a given name
and a family name
. Family names have only been used since the early 20th century.
Many Turkish given names derive from Turkish vocabulary words, for example Emin and Tülay. However, see Arabic names and Iranian names for some non-Turkish sources of given names.
The Turkish word for name is either isim or ad.
