The modern Thai name is a 20th century innovation. For centuries, inhabitants of Siam, now Thailand, did not have surnames. Thais identified themselves by referring to their parents given names or the place they resided. The Siamese government started recording data on Siamese citizens during the reign of King Rama V (1868–1910). The data recorded was minimal: birth date, date of death, household members. It was difficult to distinguish between the king's subjects as many shared the same name. In 1912, two years after the Western-educated Rama VI ascended to the throne, he declared that a birth, death, and marriage registration system would be instituted in Siam. Everyone had to bear a surname to identify theselves properly. In 1913, the first Surname Act was promulgated.
