Telling your name in Marathi…..

marathi language


Learn to tell your name in  Marathi :

“Give a man chance to talk and he will always talk about himself.”

We are desperate to share random bits of information about ourselves.  Our thoughts,  habits,  emotions,  needs,  wants,  wishes,  fantasies ……..  It is hard-wired into our brains. We are more interested in our lives than anyone else’s. No doubt, personal pronouns are most commonly used words in a language we speak and they shall be first words we must learn while learning a new language.

Marathi personal pronouns are nothing but replacements for  English I,  My and Me.

मी गब्बर आहे

(mee gabbar ahe)

मै गब्बर हूँ | I am Gabbar.
मी बसंती आहे.

(mee basanti ahe)

मै बसंती हूँ | I am Basanti .
मी कालिया आहे.

(mee kaaliya ahe)

मै कालिया हूँ | I am Kaliya .
मी सांभा आहे.

(mee saambha ahe)

मै सांभा हूँ | I am Sambha.


What I learned : मी = मै = I.

 Since time unknown, people  have been possessive with the things they belong .  ( Hey  , This is my cave and my wife …..you go away ) . Who doesn’t like claiming  an ownership over things around us ? We use possessive adjecitve for this purpose . English has only one first person possessive adjective  “ My “.  Marathi has 3 – माझा ,माझी ,माझे  . Hindi has 3 –मेरा ,मेरी ,मेरे . Even French has 3- Mon/Ma/Mes.  The one you use depends on the gender of the following noun.

Have a look at the table below.

माझा हात

maazaa haat

मेरा हाथ My hand
माझी गाडी

maazi gaadi

मेरी गाडी My vehicle
माझे नाव

maaze naav

मेरा नाम My name
माझे कपडे

maaze kapde

मेरे कपडे My clothes
माझे बाबा

maaze baabaa

मेरे पिताजी My Dad

माझा , माझी , माझे = मेरा , मेरी , मेरे = My

In Marathi ,  Shah Rukh Khan would say :

learn marathi : tell your name

मी शाह रुख खान आहे .
(mee shaah rukh khaan ahe)
मै शाह रुख खान हूँ |
I am Shah Rukh Khan.
मी डॉन आहे.

(mee don ahe)

मै डॉन हूँ | I am Don.
माझे नाव खान आहे .

(maze naav khaan ahe )

मेरा नाम खान है | My name is Khan.
मी भारतीय आहे. (mee bhartiya ahe) मै भारतीय हूँ | I am an Indian.

  50. Abhimanyu says:

    Hi my Marathi friends tell me Majhe naav ____ aahe is wrong and it should actually be Majha naav _____ aahe. Can you explain?

    • Akshay says:

      Yes, while speaking, native marathi speakers give stress on the last letter. “maajha” not “maajhaa” is actually a shortned way to say “maaze”. There is nothing wrong if you say maajhe nav abhimanyu aahe.

  59. shavez says:

    why is there “maze” with “naav”, is it an execption?

  60. chris says:

    no, it can’t ’cause naav(name) is a neuter gender. that’s why its “maaze naav”

    I am loving ‘mindurmarathi.com’

    thank u

    • Akshay says:

      Hi vidhya,
      you are almost right except a few corrections. See the correct sentences below.
      मी विद्या आहे
      माझ्या बाबांचे नाव सुंदरम आहे
      माझ्या आईचे नाव सुलोचना आहे
      माझा मुलगा एकवीस वर्षाचा आहे

  85. Ashish says:

    Hey Akshay,
    I find these tutorials really good. Kudos!

    I have a doubt: If माझे is equivalent to मेरे in Hindi, then why do we say माझे नाव instead of माझा नाव ?

    माझे नाव आशिष रास्ते आहे :-)

    • Akshay says:

      Hi Ashish,

      mere which is equivalent to maaze is for plural nouns.
      mere kapde = maaze kapde
      Neuter gender does not exist in Hindi. so Naam is masculine and hence we use mera naam.

      Hope I made you point clear.

      • Ashish says:

        Yes, you clarified it!
        Didn’t know that maajhe in Marathi can be used in plural as well as neuter forms.

    “गाडी मिरवणाऱ्या श्रीमंत पेक्षा झोपडीत हसणाऱ्या गरीबाकडे पहावं आयुष्य जास्त सुंदर वाटत.

    नशिबाची चाकरी करण्यापेक्षा कर्तृत्वाला आपल्या हाताखाली बाळगाव आयुष्य जास्त सुंदर बनत.

    भविष्याचे चित्र काढण्यापेक्षा वर्तमानातल पूर्ण कराव भूतकालातल रंगवून पहावं आयुष्य जास्त सुंदर वाटत.

    कायमच मागण्या करण्यापेक्षा कधीतरी काहीतरी देऊन पहावं आयुष्य जास्त सुंदर वाटत.

    हरल्यावर एकटेच पश्चात्ताप करण्यापेक्षा मित्राच्या खांद्यावर रडून पहावं आयुष्य नक्कीच सुंदर वाटत.

    चारचौघात एकट बसण्यापेक्षा कधी कधी समुद्रकिनाऱ्यावर आठवणींना घेऊन बसावं आयुष्य जास्त सुंदर वाटत.

    आपल्याला कोण हवंय यापेक्षा आपण कोणाला हवंय हे सुद्धा कधीतरी पहावं आयुष्य जास्त सुंदर वाटत.

    आकाशातले तारे कधीच मोजून होत नाहीत माणसाच्या गरजा कधीच संपत नाहीत शक्य तेवढे तारे मोजून समाधानी रहावं आयुष्य जास्त सुंदर वाटत..!”

    • Akshay says:

      Life is more beautiful when you observe a smiling poor man instead of a rich driving his car
      Life is more beautfiul in doing your duty instead of remaining slave to your fate
      Life is more beautiful when you finish your present first, color your past instead of paining(thinking) of the future
      Life is more beautiful when you give something instead of constantly putting up demands
      LIfe is more beautiful if you cry on your friends shoulder after loosing instead of staying alone and repenting
      Life is more beautiful if you sit on a beach someday with sweet memories instead of sitting alone in the crowd
      Life is more beautiful if you give importance to people who need you than to people you need
      Stars in the sky are countless and so are the human demands. Keep your demands in limit and stay content and your life is beautiful

  110. Hritik says:
