    Find my name

    Hi there!

    May I say that somebody found my name beautiful? If not, what would be the best word to replace 'find'?

    Cheers,
    Tito

    Re: Find my name

    In that use "find" means "perceive to be".

    He found her (to be) very beautiful.
    He found the movie (to be) very entertaining.

    Re: Find my name

    You could also say 'He thinks my name is beautiful'.
