Is Je suis nom at least a colloquial thing that's correct?
I watched Despicable Me 2 in French a while ago and I heard " Je suis (nom) " from two characters, Margo and the main villain. Is that sometimes correct?
This question relates to:French lesson "Saying your name: Je m'appelle, Tu t'appelles, Vous vous appelez"

Actually, you can hear that said quite often. In my understanding the difference is very much like in English:
Je m'appelle Chris. -- My name is Chris.Je suis Chris. -- I am Chris.
The former is, well, more formal.
-- Chris (not a native speaker).
