namae, o-namae


Explanation:
When asking someone else's name, it is polite to add an "o" before "namae". In general, it is a good rule of thumb to add the "o" whenever you are asking about someone else's name.

Ex:
O-namae wa nandesuka?
Imouto-san no o-namae wa nandesuka?

Always leave off the "o" when you are talking about yourself.

Ex:
Watashi no namae wa Jason desu.

You can also leave off the "o" for other's names when you are talking casually or to yourself.

Ex:
Kare no namae wa nandakke?
(What was his name again?)
Are, kare no namae wo wasurechatta.
(uh-oh(oh no), I forgot his name.)
