IELTS Speaking Names – Part 1
Question 1: What’s your full name?
My full name is Nguyễn Văn An.
Question 2: Does your name have any special meaning?
Yes, my name does have a special meaning. “Nguyễn” is a common family name in Vietnam, and “An” means “peace.”
Question 3: Are there any famous people with the same name as you?
Yes, there are many people with the name Nguyễn Văn An in Vietnam since both “Nguyễn” and “Văn” are very common names here. However, I don’t know any famous person specifically with the exact same name.
Question 4: Are there any naming traditions in your country?
Yes, there are some naming traditions in Vietnam. Family names usually come first, followed by a middle name (often “Văn” for males and “Thị” for females), and finally, the given name. Parents often choose meaningful names with positive qualities they hope their children will embody.
Question 5: Do you like your name? Why/why not?
Yes, I do like my name. It represents my cultural identity and heritage. Moreover, it has a poetic touch with the “Văn” part, which I find beautiful and unique.
Question 6: If you could change your name, would you? What name would you choose?
While I appreciate my current name, I think it would be interesting to have a different name. If I were to choose another name, I might go with “Minh Hạnh.” “Minh” means “bright,” and “Hạnh” means “virtuous.” Together, the name would signify a person who embodies brightness and virtue.
Question 7: Do names have any cultural significance in your country?
Yes, names are of great cultural significance in Vietnam. They often reflect our country’s history, traditions, and values. Names are chosen thoughtfully to ensure a positive and meaningful impact on the individual’s life.
Question 8: What’s the most popular name in your country?
As of my last knowledge update, common names like “Nguyễn” and “Trần” are still among the most popular family names in Vietnam. For given names, “Linh” and “Nam” have been quite popular for a long time.
Question 9: Have you ever given a nickname to someone or received a nickname yourself?
Yes, nicknames are quite common in Vietnam, and I’ve given and received a few. For example, I nicknamed my friend “Tú” because she is very clever and quick-witted. Some friends call me “Anh” as a shortened form of my name “Nguyễn Văn An.”
