Latin Phrase: My Name Is...
(Myrtle Beach, SC, Horry County)
Hello Latin Teacher,
I would like to know, how do you say..."hello, my name is..."
Hello is either salve
, depending on the number of people you are addressing.
To say 'My name is...' the best Latin phrase is mihi nomen est
. It means literally 'to me the name is...'
Then simply state your name or a Latinized version of your name
To summarize: speaking to one person, say salve, mihi nomen est....
Speaking to more than one person, say salvete, mihi nomen est....
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
