Is it right to ask "What's your good name?"

Hi Ana,

Unfortunately no. Here are some examples of how you could ask for someone’s name. :)

  • What is your name? (very common)

  • What's your name? (very common)

  • What is your given name? (Sort of common)
    (Name given at birth)

  • What is your god given name? (Not common)
    (Name you were baptized as)

    Have a great day Ana!
