    "My name is" in Slovak

    At first, let's have a look at the basic words needed for completing this lesson:

    English Slovak
    a name meno
    a surname / a family name priezvisko
    a middle name stredné meno
    a nickname prezývka
    Thank you. Ďakujem.
    please prosím

     

    There are various ways how to express the most common phrase: "My name is..."

    English Slovak
    My name is... Moje meno je...
    My name is... Volám sa...
    I am... Som...

     

    You can ask about one's name with several questions:

    English Slovak
    What is your name? Aké je tvoje meno?
      Aké je vaše meno? (formal / plural)
      Ako sa voláš?
      Ako sa voláte? (formal / plural)

    The Slovak equivalent of "Nice to meet you." is "Teší ma." It is used also in formal and informal conversations.

    Example dialog

    Anna: Ahoj! Ako sa voláš? (Hi! What is your name?)

    Ján: Čau! Moje meno je Ján. A ty? (Hello! My name is Ján. And you?)

    Anna: Som Anna. Teší ma. (I am Anna. Nice to meet you.)
