Topic: This is vs it's vs i'm

So, the only difference between "I am" and "my name" is the level of "formality"?

Thank you.
So I unterstood that "my name" can be used the same way "I am", with the difference the former is slightly more "formal". I can use them to have a little more distance with the other person, or if i feel they may not really remember meeting me (always by sms etx Angel)

So, is my name the same of "I am"?

Thanks.
And,if you received something like that "Hi FounDit, my name is Igor. Me met..."
To me, this message would seem very odd. Do you agree with me?


It would not sound strange to me if you say we have met already. However, I would appreciate you speaking clearly and slowly and giving me enough time to recall our meeting, perhaps with some details of it.

If I recall it, I would be more inclined to be friendly, but if you speak quickly, and I don't recall meeting you, I'd likely be inclined to be suspicious of the call, and end it quickly.

Ah ok! I intended if you received a message/whatsapp/email... Is it the same?

Thanks... I would like to speak English like you. So, using your explanation, could "I use "My name is Igor. . ." to make it a little more distant, or if you feel they may not really remember meeting you"?
Ps in my past message I intended a message by sms etc. Is it the same?

Dancing thank you.
Would you use "my name is" (texting) with somebody you know, but you suppose he doesn't recognize you? I don't think so...

Thank you everyone.
Can I ask you if "my name is" is different from "i'm" and if yes, why?
I suppose "my name" can not be used for who I know

Thank you for having answered!
It's fantastic and, at the same time very hard, try to get all nuances of words, expressions that apparently seem to have the same meaning.
Ex, "I am" can be used or when you don't know the other man or when you suppose he/she does not know you (or remember you)... Only a native speaker could give me this explanation...
Or the different "feeling" of "it's" and "this is"!
Fantastic!!!
