Married men give theirs to their wives.
Koreans tend to have short ones.
Many Germans have long ones.

This is

Surnames (though there are probably some men without them)

Married men give theirs to their wives.

Many wives (in Western cultures, at least) take the husband's surname in marriage

Koreans tend to have short ones.

Romanized Korean names ("Gim/Kim", "Pa[r]k", "Li/Lee/Rhee", "Choi" are some popular last names) are often very short

Many Germans have long ones.

German surnames can be long, as German lends itself to long compound words

The current US President has a longer one than his predecessor.

Obama is longer, by one letter, than Bush

Popes rarely use theirs.

Popes usually take a Pope Name, like "Innocent" or "Pius" or "Gregory"
