My name is...

 

My name is Alex. That can be translated in Sanskrit to mama naama alexaha (मम नाम अलेक्षः).

 

My name is Sita. That would be in Sanskrit. mama naama seetaa (मम नाम सीता).

 

If you want to ask 'what is your name' to Alex, that would be bhavataha naama kim? (भवतः नाम किम्)? the word bhavataha (भवतः) means 'your' in masculine form and the word kim (किम्) means 'what'. Similarly when you ask 'what is your name' to Sita, that would be bhavatyaaha naama kim? (भवत्याः नाम किम्)? bhavatyaaha (भवत्याः) means 'your' in feminine form.

Bhavatyaha...is it the feminine ‘your’ or feminine plural ‘you’?

In one of your previous lessons you mentioned bhavatyaha to be the plural version of bhavati.

Is there a particular condition where one should use bhavaan/bhavati instead of tvam, or can can they be used interchangeably? Also like bhavaan/bhavati, does tvam also have a plural form?
