Your "given" name
Is this the right way of asking someone what their name is? "What is your good name?"
I am assuming that you want to know how to ask someone what their name is and if that is the case then we wouldn't ask "What is your good name?"
. We could ask What is your given name?
, which is referring to the name that you were given at birth. For example if people call me Di...someone could ask me what my given name is. In that case I would say Diana.
I hope that is what you were asking. If not just leave a comment and I'll try to explain further.
