Use of vous

Bonjour Beth,

Please follow the link to another similar question: vous vous appelez...

Bonne journée !

Hi Beth,

The verb, in this case, will be s'appeler. So the second vous will be the reflexive pronoun representing the direct object "you".

You call YOU ...... Your name is ------  the first vous is the subject pronoun.

Hope this helps.

Jim
