In which country do people usually have two surnames?

Russia
Spain
Japan
Greece
In most Span­ish-s­peak­ing coun­tries, the custom is for people to have two sur­names, paternal one (after father) and maternal one (after mother). Thus, for in­stance, Spanish goal­keep­er Iker Casillas Fer­nán­dez has Iker as his given name, Casillas as his first, and Fer­nán­dez as his second surname.
