Men's Names and Nicknames

The names in the list below are common masculine given names (for example, Edward, James, Matthew) and their typical nicknames (Ed, Jim, Matt) and pet names (Eddie, Jimmy, Matty). (Terms related to names are described in English Names in the section Vocabulary.)

Names may have a number of variants, for example, Stephen, Steven, Steve, Stephan, Steffan; Terry, Terrance, Terrence, Terence. Many nicknames are used as given names, for example, Jack as a nickname for John and Jack as a given name in its own right; Harry as a nickname for Henry and Harry as an independent given name.

Use names and nicknames correctly. When addressing a man (or a boy), do not change his name. For example, if a man introduces himself as Sam, call him Sam, not Samuel. If a man introduces himself as Samuel, call him Samuel, not Sam or Sammy. If he says that his name is Samuel Brown, address him as Mr. Brown until he asks you to address him by his first name. (See Forms of Address in the section Vocabulary and Getting Acquainted in the section Phrases.)

Имена в списке ниже – распространенные мужские имена (например, Edward, James, Matthew) и их типичные уменьшительные имена (Ed, Jim, Matt) и уменьшительно-ласкательные имена (Eddie, Jimmy, Matty). (Термины, связанные с именами, описываются в статье English Names в разделе Vocabulary.)

Имена могут иметь ряд вариантов, например, Steven, Stephen, Steve, Stephan, Stefan; Terry, Terrance, Terrence, Terence. Многие уменьшительные имена употребляются как имена, даваемые при рождении, например, Jack как уменьшительное имя для John и Jack как самостоятельное имя; Harry как уменьшительное имя для Henry и Harry как самостоятельное имя.

Употребляйте имена и уменьшительные имена правильно. Обращаясь к мужчине (или к мальчику), не изменяйте его имя. Например, если при знакомстве мужчина представляется как Sam, называйте его Sam, а не Samuel. Если мужчина представляется как Samuel, называйте его Samuel, а не Sam или Sammy. Если он говорит, что его имя Samuel Brown, обращайтесь к нему Mr. Brown, пока он не попросит обращаться к нему по имени. (См.
