Looking for a Russian teacher?

Word in focus

чувак  [choo-VAK] (masculine noun) – dude, man, guy

А кто этот чувак? Ты его раньше здесь видел? = Who is that guy? Have you seen him here before?

У тебя что, чувак, совсем крыша поехала? =  Dude, are you nuts?

« закончить - to finish | Main | понедельник - Monday »

имя - name

имя  [I-mya] (neuter noun) – a name

Я забыл его имя. = I forgot his name.


Plural: имена


Genitive: имени

Dative: имени

Please, note, that this word is not used in phrases like "My name is..." or "What's your name?" In this case you use the verb "звать" = to call:
