Name by name: let’s sort it out together

Is it correct in our country to address people only by their first names?

It is now fashionable to call people of any age by their first names only. Vladimir Putin, Yevgeny Petrosyan. And we had a course recently, too. A psychologist strongly advised to call each other only by name. She conducted a training session with us. It was easy to call young people Lyuda and Sasha. But to an older colleague my tongue does not allow to address: “Tanya. “I see my former student, now my colleague, can’t call me by my name. It’s not comfortable. How do you feel about this innovation?

I always address my elders by their patronymic names, except in the inner circle. I don’t see any shame in calling the younger ones by their full names (not Tanya, but Tatiana), and the invariable “You”. And in front of the children at school only by first name and patronymic.And innovations do not always have to be followed, even those strongly advised to apply. It is not worth breaking what has been built up for centuries. I had to work with ancient documents and all the time I encountered the address: “Gracious sovereign, and patronymic name.” What a delight.

All my colleagues and young (many of my former students), and their peers, and older always call me by name and patronymic. And I like it. And I can not even imagine how to call a man by name who is ten years older.

I sometimes call children by their first names and patronymics, they are confused at first, but I see that they are pleased. Adults only by their first name and patronymic.

During exams I only call my children by their first names and patronymics. And I only call my colleagues by their names.

I have three Mashas in my class. To distinguish, I sometimes call them by their first name and patronymic (more often by their surname). I can tell at once who I am addressing. They also sit in a pile, and you can’t tell from the direction of your eyes which one the teacher is looking at.

I only call on my colleagues by their first names and patronymics. Pedagogical habit. At 17, I came to work in a school in the country. Every grandmother greeted me by my patronymic name, and even with a half bow. That’s how I got involved, there was no other way. We have been friends for many years, we go out to the countryside together, meet, etc. We used to work together in one school. The result: we call only by first name and patronymic, regardless of age.

I think this is a subtle issue. Age, degree of closeness, and respect are all important here. Of course, the situation as well. I think that one should call one by his or her own name, as one’s upbringing and sense of tact dictate. Your psychologist is probably guided by Western theories. But there are also ethno-cultural traditions, which should not be forgotten.

On the last advanced training course the psychologist lined us up in a circle and urged us to address each other by name. She said that it was the right thing to do, it brought the staff together. I imagined myself: I come to the director and say “Hello Michael (or Misha). Further my imagination did not work.

NAME and NAME is a beautiful feature of Russian life. Once upon a time, a former serf could simply gasp: “Barin, you call me by my first name and patronymic! I’ll do anything for you for that!” Worse yet, we don’t have a comfortable way to address a stranger. Man or Woman is awful, “courtesan,” as Elena Viktorovna just wrote, does not take root in the people until ordered by the adoring authorities. neither Mr. nor comrade (after the movie Tambov Wolf is your comrade), except for “sit down, Grandma” sometimes in the streetcar. On the other hand, my professor, former head of the department and just a close friend, adores it when I address him as “Stepanych” – he loved his father in some special way.

Yes, Mikhail Alexandrovich, we have a physicist, whom both the children and we call Mikhalych. He used to run a wrestling section in the city, and then he coached weightlifters.

I call my students “ladies”, because there are girls and girls by age. And for a while they even behave like ladies. But not for long. ::smile5::

Don’t know what’s right? First they allow it, then we’ll have to clean it up. At our school many teachers address each other by name and “you”. The kids, of course, hear that. I make a ridiculous joke: “Sveta”, “Lena”, “fifth-grade teacher”, “fifth-grade teacher” go around our school. What then to teach children?

Our principal addresses me by my first name and patronymic and “YOU” in his office, and by strangers by my first name and patronymic and “YOU”. When it comes to my husband, I refer to him by his first name and patronymic in the third person. When the boss once asked him to come in through me and just called him by his first name, obviously I got skewered and she never spoke like that again. ::smile5::

Patronymic is our specialty of addressing people. There is no such thing abroad. They only address people there by their first name. We took that from them. Unfortunately, it is not the only thing we adopted from a foreign culture.

I once watched a meeting of the president with the people and the press. People were holding posters with their names and places of work. Putin said, “Hello, Tanya. Ask your question.” And she said, “Hello, Vova.” It was a shock to me.

It’s okay! That journalist by age, at least, was Tatiana. So it was a mirror reaction.

When I hear my name outside the house, I have the wrong reflex. smile6. smile4: I address my colleagues and elders by their first names and patronymics, there is no other way. I call my children’s parents by their first names and patronymics too. And to my friend-colleague (she is also my classmate) even at a party – only in this way. I can not just call her by her first name.

There is such a moment! My son’s classmate Jana is now a teacher. I’ve known her for almost a quarter of a century since she was seven years old. Sometimes we meet in the library, she and her class. And I only call her Yana Alekseevna. By the way, since we are colleagues and I stopped being “Aunt Ira” for her. smile7::

Empty you with a hearty you She, speaking, replaced And all the happy dreams In the soul of a lover stirred up. I stand before her brooding, I can’t take my eyes off her; And I say to her: How sweet you are! And I think how I love you!

So, according to the rules of modern etiquette the address “You” is obligatory in the following cases: – Regardless of age and social origin – in an official environment and when addressing a stranger or a stranger. At that the address “you” to a person of 25 is supplemented with a name and a patronymic. Those who are between 15 and 25 years old are often addressed only with a full name. – When communicating with a person met for the first time. – When speaking with a coworker, if other people are present. – During business communication in the absence of informal relations between people. – To colleagues at a conference, symposium, etc., regardless of how they communicate informally. – When a doctor communicates with a patient, regardless of the circumstances. – Journalists when interviewing even people they know well. – When addressing high school and college students, which emphasizes a respectful attitude and marks the maturity of a person. – When referring to older people, it is used along with their first and patronymic names. – In a formal setting, even to a person who is well acquainted. ©

One acquaintance of mine named his daughter Alexandra. And he himself is Alexander. I said to him: “Sasha, don’t you have any other names? Alexander Alexandrovna-it’s so hard to pronounce!” He said, “And maybe she’ll be called Auntie Shura to her old age”: smile5::

Prospectus OOD with children 5-7 years old Subject: “Our names and surnames” lesson plan (preschool)

– to exercise in the formation of nouns with diminutive suffixes, full names and patronymics.

– to promote good attitudes toward themselves and others.

Looking at family photos, an exhibition of drawings on the theme: “My Family”, creating a family tree, a conversation: “Me and My Name”, listening to the song “My Homeland”.

Equipment: a picture of a boy and a girl, illustrations of fairy tale characters: Aibolit, Know-Nothing, Snow Maiden, Snow White, Thumbelina, Cat Kotofeyevich, audio recordings of a child crying, classical music, two baby carriages with dolls in different caps and with tags on the handles, a letter carrier with a letter, video clips of cartoons (excerpts) “Alice in Wonderland”, “Adventures of Know-Nothing and his friends”, “How Know-Nothing was making up poems”.

Vocabulary work: right, Fatherland, namesake, newborn, last name, first name, relative, patronymic.

Knock at the door. The letter carrier comes and brings a letter. The educator reads with the children, but the letter does not say “to whom”. He says that the letter is not for us and give it back to the letter carrier.

Teacher: Guys, why did we give the letter back? (children’s answers). Yes, there is no name or surname on it.

Teacher: Everyone has something that you can’t see, but it makes him or her different from others. (Makes a riddle)

We weren’t there – it was,

We weren’t – it will be,

No one’s ever seen it,

But everyone has it.

My mother has it, my father has it,

My daughter has it, my granddaughter has it,

To find out what it is,

I have to name it out loud. (Children’s answers)

The teacher: The name plays a big role in people’s lives. It is impossible to do without a name. People value their names, carry a name through life. A person can be deprived of all wealth, all rights, but not deprived of a name.

Why do you think people invented names?

Children: To know if it is a boy or a girl, a man or a woman, to distinguish one person from another.

Educator: You can tell a lot about a person by their name. For example, when you hear someone addressed to you, you can tell what kind of person he or she is. For example, one person was addressed as “Andryushenka,” and another as “Anna Petrovna. What would you say about “Andriushenka” and “Anna Petrovna”? Who are they?

Answer: “Andryushenka” is a boy, and “Anna Petrovna” is a woman.

Correct. If a child is called “Ilya” and another “Xyusha”. What can we say about these children?

Answer: We can say that they are a boy and a girl.

Well done, guys. You can tell by a name who you are a girl or a boy, a man or a woman, a young person or an elderly person.

Guys, tell me who you can call by name?

Answer: By name you can call a friend, a brother or a sister.

Right, you can call a peer by his or her name. And who is called by name and patronymic?

Answer: First and patronymic names are used to address older people.

Right, when you call an adult by his or her first and patronymic names, you show respect for him or her. But not knowing the names of your family and friends is impolite. That’s why you should remember the name and surname of your relatives and friends.

Teacher: That’s great. Each of you has a name. But imagine what would happen if all the names suddenly disappeared? (Children’s answers).

Teacher: I suggest you watch an excerpt from “Alice in Wonderland”.

– I hope you don’t intend to lose your name?

– Of course not,” said Alice confusedly.

– I don’t know, I don’t know. Just think how convenient it is to come home without a name! For example, you are called in class. The teacher says, ‘Go to the blackboard…’ and then she shuts up, because you won’t have a name, and you can pretend it’s not you, but someone else.

– It won’t work, and you’ll still have to answer to me, not to somebody else. The teacher will say, “Hey, you!” or “Hey,” or whatever.

Teacher: So, without a name, it’s hard to communicate with each other and understand who they’re talking about.

Hey, guys! Get in a circle! (Children stand in a circle)

There are so many hands now (Hands in front, backside up).

Whose hands tell (Children say their names).

And show me your hands. (Turn palms upside down)

And now hold hands, (Hold hands and run in a circle)

And run in a circle.

(All children put their hands together above their heads)

The roof was made out of their hands.

We have a house of names (Join hands and make a circle wider).

This is the house we live in (hands above).

Teacher: Let’s all read a poem together:

Mashenka and Manechka.

What is the girl’s name?

Educator: Although different names were called, but that was the name of one girl Masha. When she grows up, she will be called Maria.

Teacher: Let’s play the game “Name affectionate family names.

(Vitya – Vityusha, Vityenka, Vityok, Vityunushka, Vityunchik, Vityushok.

Sasha – Sashok, Sashenka, Sashunchik, Sanya, Sashulya.)

Children, look at the pictures and tell me who is in them.

Teacher: These fairy tale characters have different character traits and behaviors. Who can explain why they are called that?

Children: Aibolit – heals those who are sick,

The unknown boy, who knows nothing,

Teacher: Watch a fragment of the cartoon “The Adventures of Know-Nothing and His Friends” “How Know-Nothing made up poems.

You will watch carefully, and then tell me, did Nepnaky do well?

The characters in Nikolai Nosov’s book have very interesting names: Znaika, Tsvetik, Avoska, Toropyzhka, Pilyulkin… Why do you think they were called that?

Answers: Know-it-all was named that because he knew a lot.

Flowery, because he loved flowers.

The rushing boy, because he is always in a hurry.

Teacher: Did you like the poem written by Dunno? (Answers of children)

Educator: There are many different names in the world, but there are people with the same names. For example: Sasha is a girl, a boy. Such people are called “namesakes”. Listen to a poem:

There are eight Tans in the first grade,

It’s just a punishment!

They’re all Tanya, Tanya, Tanya, Tanya

Tanya, Tanya, Tanya!

If they say, “Tanya, get up!”

Eight Tania’s will stand up at once.

It’s easy to tell the newcomers apart. How to distinguish the girls?

Teacher: Everyone at birth is not only given a name, but the surname that all members of the family. Not only relatives can have the same last name, but also different people. They are called namesakes.

The child’s name is chosen by the parents, but does anyone choose the last name?

The last name comes from the father. Who did daddy get it from (grandfather)?

– Is it possible to live without a last name?

It is very difficult. We have two Nasties in our group. How do we distinguish them?

Once upon a time, a long time ago, there weren’t many people on Earth; everyone had a first name, but no last name. But people became more and more and began to come up with surnames. Names came up with by sight, such as similar to the man on the hare, was Zaitsev, similar to tits, became Sinitsyn. Invented by occupation, for example, was a blacksmith, became Kuznetsov. And most often from the name, for example, father’s name was Sergey, and so the whole family became Sergeeva.

Many names come to us from the distant past. Often the surname was given to a person by his profession: the blacksmith was given the surname Kuznetsov, the carpenter – Carpenters, the fisherman – Rybakov. Just as often the surname was given by the name of the men in the family: Ivan was given the surname Ivanov, Peter – Petrov, Sidor – Sidorov. The surname was also given depending on a person’s behavior: a quiet man – Tishin, a noisy one – Shumilin, a cheerful one – Veselov. Many surnames are derived from the names of birds, fish, and animals.

Game. Look, the artist drew several portraits, but forgot to sign the names. Try to guess which of these people Nosov, Kruglov, Solntsev, Khudyakov.

Educator: Children, look and tell me who it is?

Educator: Yes, they are bogatyrs. This is Dobrynya, the good man. And about this hero, listen to a passage from byliny:

In a clear field the dust is rising

Ilya Muromets son of Ivanovich,

He’s approaching the Nightingale.

What is the name of the hero?

When you grow up and become adults, to your name will be added patronymic. It came from the word “Fatherland”. Who can remind me what it means?

Children: Motherland is the Motherland.

Teacher: In Russia, patronymic was given by the name of the father. Ilya Muromets son Ivanovich. So Ilya’s father’s name was Ivan. And Ilya was called Ilya Ivanovich. And what was the name of the father of this fairy tale hero? (Points to Cat).

The Educator: So this is Cat Kotofeyevich. When a person grows up, he begins to call him something else. What do you call me? Why do they call me that? What is your father’s name? The patronymic is given to the child by the name of the father. For example: Sergei’s father’s name is Vladimir, which means that his patronymic will be Vladimirovich. When he grows up, he will be addressed as: Sergey Vladimirovich. Think about it and say your patronymic.

(Children say patronymic)

Teacher: When you were born, you were given a “Certificate of Birth” (shows), when you turn 14 you will be given another document (shows). Read what it is called? (Passport). The passport will have your First Name, Last Name, and Middle Name on it.

Each child’s name is whatever his parents think of, and the patronymic is passed on from the father. And the last name is passed on from the father.

Do you know what your parents’ names are? Let’s find out.

This is our album of family photographs, and whose picture I open, he calls his parents by name and patronymic.

Well done children, you know your parents’ names.

When you are little, you are called by baby names, but when you grow up and become adults, you will be called by your first and patronymic names.

Guys, let’s play a game: Imagine that you have become adults and come to the conference, but we do not know your name. You have to introduce yourselves as adults.

(Children pick up their attributes – hat, tie, scarf, glasses, purse, paper folder, etc.).

You played well, introduced yourselves correctly.

You all have first and last names and they are very pretty.

There is a knock on the door. A parcel is brought in. It reads. It says: To: Denis, Katya, etc.

Open the package, there are “drops of kindness”.

The teacher gives them to the children.

You will grow up and become good people, do many good deeds for all people and make your name and family name famous.
