    in someone's name

    I have got two questions regarding this matter.
    We say, for example, this house is in my name.
    1. Is it the normal and best way to say that?
    2. What is the question from this sentence?
    Thanks.

    Re: in someone's name

    Thanks a lot.
    And can we put the preposition "in" at the end of the question and say "Whose name is this house in?"? Does it make sense?

    Yes, you can. That is how I would say it.
