I see what you are saying with the "senders options," but that would be a strange coincidence that all my received messages have the setting to display last name first.
I think you're actually both right. taiko, go to settings/language/name display, and you'll get what you're looking for.
But of course, as mckinneycm suggests, if the sender is set up so that his/her first name is where most readers assume the last name is listed, the name will be displayed last name, first name after you make the switch.
