Bonsoir Béatrice, There are two locutions to ask the question «What is your name», --> «Comment vous vous appelez?» and «Comment vous appelez-vous?» The second is the same question formed using inversion. Here is the lesson for this: Inverted questions with reflexive verbs in the present tense (Le Présent) in French The difference between them primarily is the first is presented as the débutant level (A0) while the inverted question is more advanced and falls in the B1 level (niveau intermédiaire). If you are indeed just beginning to learn French, my suggestion is to stay with le niveau débutant (A0) questions. By doing this, you should find yourself building a solid foundation in the basics of the language. You will progress to the B1 with continued studying and perseverance. J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait. Bonne chance et bonne continuation dans vos études en français, la langue de Molière et qui a été utilisé par le monde français depuis l’époque d’Hugues Capet
