Episode description

Thank you for checking out this episode of Jeremy’s English Tips. In this episode, we are going to talk about English names. All right, so I should start by saying that most of this is my personal opinion. So, I know that some people might think differently, but all I can do is share my personal opinion with you, so that’s what I’m going to do. Now, my opinion is that English names are helpful when your real name is too difficult for English speakers to pronounce correctly.

Take home messages

  • Jeremy’s opinion is that English names are helpful when your real name is too difficult for English speakers to pronounce correctly.

  • If you make an English name, you should choose something that sounds similar to your real name.

  • Middle names are common in English speaking countries, but are not necessary.

  •  In diverse parts of North America, many people will prefer to call you by your real name out of respect.

  • Nicknames are names that are usually made for fun, and can be a shortened form of your real name or something completely made up.
