First name, middle name, daughter of, MOTHER's first name (No last name published).
Which is the traditional way to mention a person for prayers (while they are alive - using mother's name, if deceased in Ashkenazic tradition father's name is used, in Sephardic tradition mother's name is used IINM).

It's sloppy and it makes me cringe. Don't say farby, CM. It's farbrengen. Farby makes it sound like a frat party.
