Do we need a last name that identifes us?

You’ve just bumped into this new awesome group of people. How do you introduce yourself? Just your first name, or your full name? How does this differ if your meeting is a formal one?

I think we only need a last name for official purposes, such as registering for a passport. If you wish to introduce yourself to people, you may not necessarily need to tell them your last name. Unless a name is somehow very high in demand, any two random people in a group will invariably not share the same name.

In  my experience, some people do ask for your last name on first meeting, I don’t give it away easily though.

What’s your opinion? How do you introduce yourself in professional and personal situations?
