How do you properly write your name?
When you’re asked to mention or write your name, call/write your first name first before any other names and the name that comes last is presumed to be your last name/surname. For example, if you’re James and your surname is John, in writing your name, write James John not the other way round.
Should I use first or last name in email?
If a hiring manager signs their message with their first name, then you should use it in your greeting. If, on the other hand, they used their full name or some variation of their last name (Mr. Jones, Ms. Kay or Steven Jones, for example), then you should greet them using their last name.
Is it rude to address someone by their first name?
Technically, it’s not appropriate to use a person’s first name, without permission. The right thing to do is use an honorific (Mr., Ms., Mrs., Dr. …) until the person says, “Please call me (first name).”
Why is calling teachers by their first name rude?
Because they’re in a position of authority, and it’s out of respect. It depends where– I went to a school for a while where everyone called the teachers by their first names, and calling them Mr. or Ms. just would have been weird. Generally only using last names means respect.
Can you say dear full name?
It is commonly followed either by an honorific and a surname, such as “Dear Mr. Smith,” or by a given name, such as “Dear Mark.” However, it is not common in English to use both a title of address and a person’s given name: “Dear Mr. John Smith” would not be common form.
