"Name" vs. "Given name"?[edit]

Why are some of these names listed as "names" while others are "given names"? Aren't all names that aren't surnames, "given names"? And some of the names listed here, aren't even identified as a "name"! I'm not arguing for one designation over another, just looking for some consistency. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 15:25, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
