Vedran, thank you for the interesting cultural and linguistic perspective.  In Spanish, "Como te llamas?" (familiar) "Como se llama?" (formal) literally translate as "What do you call yourself?" (want me to call you?).  (I believe the latter could also be translated as "What are you called?", which you note is slightly different.  I also know that addressing people by name is a more involved -- and dangerous-- subject in Japan than in America.

I think that David's rewrite is clear enough with the little change I suggested at the end, and have approved Joannah's PR with one little addition.  Even if not perfect, it is definitely better than the current text.
