I always learned It as “comment vous appelez vous”. Is this not correct?
This relates to:Saying your name: Je m'appelle, Tu t'appelles, Vous vous appelez -
There are different ways to pose a question in French. The one you mention is the so-called inverted form. It is considered more formal and elegant:
Comment vous appelez-vous ?
Then there is the version with est-ce que:
Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?
And, lastly, the most common one in normal spoken French:
Comment vous vous appelez ? OrVous vous appelez comment ?
