is there a difference between llamo and nombre or are they synonyms?

June 26, 2018


Llamar is a verb, so you say "me llama _" and it means literally "i call myself _" and translates to "my name is ___". I think you can also say "mi nombre es..." to mean the same thing.

Nombre means number in French

so you say "me llama " ... "i call myself " : crazypiggy12

Just to point out that it should be "me llamo" for "I call myself" ("my name is"). "me llama" has a 3rd person verb form, so it means that someone else is doing the calling e.g

  • Mi mamá me llama por teléfono — My mother calls me...

  • Me llama 'gordito' para fastidiarme — He/she calls me...

  • Todos me llaman Paquito, pero me llamo Francisco Javier Álvarez de Campos Guttiérrez del Olmo — Everyone calls me Paquito but my name is ... Tres comedias baratas by Jose Quintano Ruiz (Google Books)

My gf just said that mi llamo is more translated as "they call me" where as nombre is more of "my name"

"me llamo" (like the French, "Je m'appelle", Italian "mi chiamo") literally means "I call myself" and is a way of saying what your name is.

I think you could say "me llaman" ("they call me") as we might do in English: "They call me 'Jelly' 'cause my name's Bean". eg

Me llaman Mister Tibbs! (They call me Mister Tibbs)

No son sinónimos como tal pero expresan lo mismo como en la siguiente oración;

"yo me llamo juan" (esta es informal)

"mi nombre es juan" (esta es mas formal )la traducin mas exacta de esta oracion es "my name is juan".

This is such a good thread to read through. It's like you are in a class, all of you, and the ones who are ahead, or more experienced, or native speakers weigh in with answers, explanations, examples. I LOVE this aspect. Wish I had more time to read them all. I learn something from every one I read.

Why is it not his name?

May 31, 2018


Él=his. El=the. Sounds the same, spelt different.

June 3, 2018


It sounds different, with él, stress is put on é

Could be wrong, but I'm under the impression, at this stage of my learning, Day 362 with the owl, today, that El (with the accent on the E), means He, and only He. Not 'his', 'hers', or 'it's', which are all 'su'.

His name = su nombre

Sounded like A hombre until checking slow version.
