One of the examples given is:
- T'appelles-tu Martine?
- Is your name Martine?
How would one say "Is my name Martine?"
My ear says that the kind of inversion describe in this lesson ("M'appelle-je Martine?") isn't allowed in French for the first person singular. But I could be wrong.
In any case, it'd be helpful to add either an example, or a specific note that this isn't allowed, to the lesson. Thanks!
First-person inverted questions are rare as you suggest. Please take a look at the following lesson listing the few verbs where they are tolerated.
Forming inverted questions in Le Présent, special cases: puis-je, ai-je, suis-je
So you would have to say -
cest mon nome Martine
