This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: What is my child's first name?

I received a correspondent child yesterday, and I am very excited to write to her! It says that her name is Mary Njeri. However, it lists her personal name as Njeri. Do you think I should address her as Mary or Njeri?

I usually use the name that they list as her personal name, a lot of them are named after a parent and go by their middle names .. it would not hurt to ask in your first letter what name they want to be used.

Usually I use the name that is listed as their personal name. However, in the first letter I ask them if there is a name or nickname they prefer I use.
