Confused about the possessive pronoun used in an example
From another website showing examples in the usage of possessive pronouns I got this;
Он спросил моё имя и я ответил, что меня зовут Алексей.
My confusion is the the pronoun used is моё instead of моя. имя ends on я and is therefore a female noun?
Is the example wrong? Is this some sort of exception? Help me out :)
I think all nouns that end in "мя" (in nominative) are of the neuter gender: имя, вымя, пламя, племя, семя, знамя.
Имя is in the neuter gender. It's one of the strange exceptions you just have to memorise.
