nom

English translation of nom

name

The French word 'nom' translates to 'name' in English. It is typically used much in the same context as in English, to identify a person, place, or thing. It's important to note that unlike in English, where name is just a singular standalone concept, in French 'nom' can refer to both first name (prénom) and last name (nom de famille).
