“Nazywać się” = “to be called”

After today’s class you will be able to ask and answer question “what is your name?” in Polish language. Let’s first have a look at conjugation of verb “nazywać się“:

As we can see the core word for verb „nazywać się” is „nazywa”.

To ask someone „what is your name?” in Polish language we would use:

„Jak się nazywasz?” or “Jak masz na imię”?

We can answer to it in three different ways:

Nazywam się…

Mam na imię…

Jestem…

Jestem” as we know from previous classes means „I am”. „Nazywam się” and „Mam na imię” means in English exactly the same which is „My name is…”.
