I want to show customer last name into my website when customer will access their account.

<?php if( $isLoggedIn ) { ?>                                    
<li class="first">
    <a id="quick_sigup_link" style="positon:relative;" href="<?php echo $this->getUrl('customer/account/'); ?>">
            <span>Hello. User</span>
            <span class="youraccount" style="margin-top:-25px;">My Account</span>

Can be done using plugin and knockout


     * @param \Magento\Customer\CustomerData\Customer $subject
     * @param $result
     * @return mixed
    public function afterGetSectionData(\Magento\Customer\CustomerData\Customer $subject, $result)
        $result['is_logged_in'] = $this->customerSession->isLoggedIn();
        if ($this->customerSession->isLoggedIn() && $this->customerSession->getCustomerId()) {
            $customer = $this->customerSession->getCustomer();
            $result['email'] = $customer->getEmail();
            $result['lastname'] = $customer->getLastname();
            $result['customer_group_id'] = $customer->getGroupId();
            $result['customer_group_name'] = $this->getGroupName($customer->getGroupId());

        return $result;


<div class="greet welcome" data-bind="scope: 'customer'">
    <!-- ko if: customer().is_logged_in  -->
    <span class="logged-in"
            data-bind="text: new String('<?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Welcome back %1', '%1')) ?>').replace('%1', customer().lastname)">
    <!-- /ko -->   

First You need to create a object instance:

$obj = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();

After That:

        $customerSession = $obj->get('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');
        if($customerSession->isLoggedIn()) {
 echo   $customerSession->getCustomer()->getLastname()."<br/>";  // get Customer last name
            echo   $customerSession->getCustomer()->getName()."<br/>";  // get  Full Name

  • Direct Objectmanager instance is a quick fix but should be avoided as much as possible. good idea would be to inject in the constructor. – mp196 Jan 9 '17 at 6:38
