While William Shakespeare may still make many a heart swoon, and while his famous quote may indeed be correct, we all still have to call each other something, don’t we. My grandmother’s name was Rose, and there were times when she was NOT sweet. I knew a man named Harry that had no hair at all! I know many girls named Candy…well, anyway. One of the most basic truths we have in our lives whether you speak French or any other language—something no one can take from us—is our name. Now…shouldn’t that be the very first thing you learn to communicate in French? Learn how to introduce yourself in French so all those wonderful French people you meet will know who you are! I still think You by any other name would smell as sweet in French too!

Do you remember your first day of school in France, when the teacher took attendance but she didn’t know anyone yet? She had that list of new names…birth names that parents passed down through eight generations and no one even recognized anymore. You always tried to stop her before she reached your real name, but she never stopped. Alas, the French class would erupt into laughter chanting that horrible name repeatedly! All you could say in French was, “please call me anything but that!” Well, now you are in control. When you introduce yourself in French, you can tell them to call you whatever you want as long as you know the French words to use. Drop the eighty-year-old name, and hear people cheering your name in French now…”Your name! Your name! Your name!” Or something like that!
