For "Je me fais appeler" what does the "fais" mean? What are you doing/making to your name??
See link on ‘Faire + L’Infinitif’ – pay particular attention to the section ‘se faire + [infinitive] + [object] → If the thing is being done to or for the subject of the verb, you use the reflexive form ‘se faire’.
Je me fais couper les cheveux = I have my hair cut
Elle se fait appeler Mimi = She calls herself Mimi
Ils ont fait peindre leur portrait = They got their portrait done
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
Can you link to the lesson/full sentence you are referring to. The link you included only goes to the vocabulary < je fais >.
