How to ask what is your name in Nepali?
- Tapai ko naam ke ho? तपाई को नाम् के हो?
- Timro naam ke ho? तिम्रो नाम के हो?
- Tero naam ke ho? तेरो नाम के हो?
The number 1 sentence is one of the respectful ways of asking someone his/her name. This sentence literally means “what is your name?” If a person you are talking to is elder or senior then you can use this sentence “Tapaiko naam ke ho?” to find out his/her name. There is no any separate phrase for male and female they both can use this same phrase.
As we know that in the English language we can use simply “you” to refer anyone but the case is a bit different in terms of Nepali language. you have to use a particular word to refer a particular person based on their age. Based on it the number 2 sentence “Timro Naam ke ho?” also means the same thing that is “What is your name?” it is used for the person who is contemporary or even to the friends. So this is the way to ask the name of someone that is junior or of the same age.
The next phrase “Tero Naam ke ho?” can be used either to a very close friend or to someone whom you can disrespect. You have to be a bit careful while using this phrase because this is really an informal way to ask someone their name.
If you use it to the older ones then this could create a big problem, it can only be used to the close friends who will not take any offense or to those people whom you don’t have to respect at all. This phrase is rude to the way of asking people their name. So, you should be very careful while using this phrase “Tero Naam ke ho?”So if you say these phrases then you will surely get a reply to what the person’s name is.
