Dear Latin Teacher,
How would a Roman say, "Hello, my name is Steve"?
A simple Roman Hello: Salve, mihi nomen est Stephanus
. Or, if you are speaking to more than one person: Salvete, mihi nomen est Stephanus
A literal translation of this Roman Hello is: Be well, to me the name is _____. Latin often shows possession using the dative case: mihi
Therefore, to ask the question, "What is your name?" Salve, quid est nomen tibi
? Or, in the plural, Salvete, quae sunt nomina vobis
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin Teacher.
