"What is your name?"
Translation:Mi a neved?
Is 'mi a neved' used more often than 'hogy hivnak' to ask for someone's name, or is it about 50-50?
The sentence in the exercise is 'mi a neve', shouldn't it be 'mi a neved'?
No one says that, like ever. It means: What is your name like? The correct ways are: Mi a neved? or Hogy hívnak? (What is your name or How are you called)
Thanks so much. I was thinking about it last night and realized I was just hearing it incorrectly. Sometimes I struggle with hearing things correctly and trying to figure it out later, especially because of the speed of the speaker. Thanks so much for your response.
I am not sure what that means. Maybe they are asking about the origin of your name? Literally it means "What is your name like?" but I'm not sure I have heard that before.
The correct is: "Mi a neved?" It must be corrected. "Mi a neve?" = "What is her/his name?"
I did write" Mi a neved. Hogy hívna. and it was not accepted. I tjought you could give both solutions...k. "
Well, you can, but not both at once -- just one at a time.
So you could answer Mi a neved? one day and Hogy hívnak? the next day if you see the question again.
But not both in one answer.
