English term or phrase: hello my name is
used to greet people
jessica
Polish translation:Witaj(cie). Nazywam się ...
Explanation:
That depends on the context.

You see, Polish is much more complicated and indirect. For example: you must be on a really friendly terms with somebody to say TY (YOU) to them, or to call them by their first name.

Everything depends on the circumstances, how well you know the person and how formal is the greeting.

If your context is informal, you might say:

Cze¶ć! Mam na imię ...

If you see people for the first time, or you are not friends, I is safer to say:

WITAM. NAZYWAM SIĘ ...

this is very neutral and universal

Hope it helps, Jessica.
