Names and Courtesy Titles

by www.elcivics.com

Parents give their children names when they are born. Names are important because they identify who is being spoken to or talked about. It is polite to use a courtesy title and a person's last name in formal settings or when you meet someone for the first time. In informal settings or with family members and friends, it's okay to use their first name only. (3 pages)
