(名前/なまえ) desu (です)

 to moushi masu( と もうし(申し)ます)

 

Im Nami(from One piece!!)

We say ususually 「 Nami desu.」 At the casual party, we don’t have to use 「~to moushi masu 」.

Because when I hear this, I think she/he seems unfriendly, however, when at work or with an elderly person, we should use「~  to mo(u)shi masu.」

Moushi masu, is an expression of modesty, and when we use it to say my name means I am xxx.

We tend to consider the person who can speak polite Japanese definitely to be a person with an education.

Even if you are not a student, it is good to know and speak your name in a polite way.
