Meeting and Greeting

Speak Up! in French

Meeting and Greeting

What is your name?

What is your name?

Je m’appelle... - My name is...

    nom - first name

    prénom - last name

    nom de jeune fille - maiden name

    nom de famille - family name

Cultural Awareness

Cultural Awareness

first names are reserved for friends and relatives, so never address the local baker, shopkeeper, grocery clerk, etc. by their first name even if you're a regular customer. If you know the last name of a person, you may use it: Bonjour, Monsieur/Madame Lafitte.

In very formal settings such as government, corporate, or diplomatic circles, it would be very much appreciated to make the effort to learn their titles. Some examples are:

Monsieur le Directeur
Madame la Directrice
Monsieur le Consul
Madame le Maire.
