Dear Ms. Rebeca,Thanks for the lesson. I am from Bangladesh & as per our custom some names has no links with family name also we never asked for it such as my name is Mohammed Bazlur Rahman và my father name is Abdul Latif. In my passport & other certificates my name is written only Mohammed Bazlur Rahman.

My question is how I will write my first, middle và last name. You kind advice will be highly appreciated.Best regards,

An interesting t& difficult question!

I would look in the passport & follow what they have sầu done. So it MAY be that Mohammed is your first name, Bazlur is your middle name, and Rahman is your family or last name. I cannot be sure though.

Please check with other English speakers or teachers in your country as there are national and cultural differences which determine the answer khổng lồ your question.

Thanks for teaching me something, too.

Hi Abhilash,

A « maiden name » is the family name (surname, or last name) of a woman before she gets married.

Hi Rebecca,

Even if I’ve sầu been learning english for years, I found this lesson very useful! It really helps untangle some pretty well mixed up notions!

Dear Ms. Rebeca,

It is an impoliteness way to lớn ask ‘what is your name’ in India. Probably the use of ‘what is your good name’ derived from Hindi phrase “aap ka shubh naam kya hai”. If we use “good name” , it will be considered more politeness/respect.

Please accept my sincere thanks for your valuable teaching. I can follow you easily.

I was so confused about these names description.This lesson have solved my problem.Thanks a million, Rebecca.
