At first, it seems natural. You hear him say your name when he is getting your attention, or when he has to hand you something. Then, you start to notice that he is saying your name all the time. Even when he is just talking to you, he keeps saying your name. Now, you want to know why a guy says your name a lot without an obvious reason for it. Does he like you or is he just saying your name for fun?

when a guy says your name alot in conversation

At a base level, saying your name is a way to get your attention. Studies show that people are more likely to wake up when they hear their name called. Even if you just whisper their name, they will stir and wake up slightly. We are more attune to hearing our name called, so it is natural that people would call your nae to get your attention.

First, you have to look at the circumstances when he calls your name. He might just be calling your name for very real reasons. Listen to how he interacts with other people. Does he say their names just as frequently as he does yours? Is he more likely to do it around his friends, enemies or attractive girls? If you can notice who he does the same thing to, you can figure out why he might be doing it to you.

He Could Like Your Name

A fairly obvious possibility is that he just likes your name. Maybe your name is a fun one to say, or it might be the name of his favorite heroine in a book. Whatever the case, he may just like the way your name sounds when he says it.

He Could Like You

Another common reason is that he has feelings for you. He might think about you all the time, so your name is constantly in his mind. When he is around you, he naturally says your name. You can see if this is the reason by trying to flirt with him. Only flirt with him if you like him though because it would be unfair to lead him on. If you do like him, try to flirt a little and see how he responds to it. If he seems to flirt back with you, then he may be saying your name because he is interested in you. You could even ask him out to a hang out like a coffee date that isn’t exactly a date, but is sort of a date. You can judge by his reaction if he has feelings for you or not.

He Likes Your Reaction

How do you react when your name is said? If you smile or have a slight twinkle in your eyes, he may just keep saying your name because he wants to see what your reaction is.

He Wants Attention

As we mentioned earlier, he might just want attention. Saying someone’s name gets their attention immediately, so he may want you to focus on him. This is especially likely if you tend to lose focus or pay attention to other things in a conversation. By saying your name, he is returning your focus to what he is saying and himself.

He Reads Too Many Fantasy Books

This is probably not the reason, but it would be a cute one. In many fantasy books, knowing someone’s real name gives you complete power over them. By saying their name, you get to control what they do. Names are said to have power, although most of that power is in our own minds. Most likely, this is not the reason why he is saying your name, although it is a slight possibility if he really likes fantasy novels.

He Wants You to Feel Important

Charismatic people have an amazing ability to make each person they talk to feel like they are the most important person in the world. They make eye contact and genuinely seem like they care about what you say. When you are talking to a charismatic person, you will notice a few common traits. As soon as they approach you, they tend to ask for your name and then remember your name throughout the conversation.

Often, this is deliberate. Forgetting a name can make someone feel sad or hurt. Once the charismatic individual learns a name, they use it multiple times so that they remember it. They will often include your name in many of the questions that they ask. It helps to make a connection with you and shows that they care about you. Your guy may be saying your name because he wants you to like him and know that he genuinely cares about you. He might like you as more than a friend, but you can’t know for sure quite yet.

He works at the other end of my line of desks. I think hes attractive and i think we are both single. Im openly gay and everyone knows including him. So why would he be doing this? It seems like he is always looking for a reaction. Sometimes i say his name back sometimes i just smile.

Decide if this relationship is viable. Take an opportunity to speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. You may strengthen your relationship by spending additional time with him in person.
