An Explanatory Note – “to be named”

What were they named?

What were they called?(passive)

What did she call them? (active)

What did she name them? (active)

What were their names? (simple past tense – “be” verb only)

We don’t use the passive pattern “to be called” much. It is common in German which is closely related to English.


How are you called?
What’s your name?


Wie heisst du?
Wie heisen Sie?
(literally “How are you called?)

Passive Voice

    It’s an awesome post in support of all the internet visitors; they
    will take benefit from it I am sure.

  5. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to
    find out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Many thanks!
