Field labels for non-native speakers of English

Hi all,

I'm currently involved in a redesign of a registration form aimed primarily
at native English speakers, but with increasing use by non-native speakers,
especially from Asia. Unfortunately, using non-english labels is out of
scope for the time being.

Has anyone come across research on which name field labels are most readily
understood by non-native speakers?

a) surname, last name, family name
b) given name, first name

Any recommendations on these or other easily confused form labels would be
much appreciated.

Thanks, Marcus
