"Hogy hívnak" and "Mi a neved". What's the difference in meaning and use?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RyagonIV

"Hogy hívnak?" - How do they call (you)?
"Mi a neved?" - What is your name?
There is no difference in use.

The pronunciation of Hogy hívnak is so faster in the audio

The pronunciation is: [hoji ibnak]

Can "Kati" be the Hungarian equivalent of "Katie" in English?

Yes it is.

Kati is the nickname of a very common name Katalin, which is the equivalent of English Kathleen/Catherine/Catherin

Magyar vagyok, nekem el lehet hinni, ez a kérdés teljesen helyes, de abban igazatok van, hogy a mi a neved és a hogy hívnak között nincs különbség

The answer they gave was "how they call you"? I used "who are you?" which is more natural in English than "what are you called"?
