Conversation at a table is to begin immediately after people are seated. You can do a self-introduction by saying first to the person on your right and then to your left, "I am ...," followed by your first and last name. You can show your place card and say, "My name." A woman may reply to an introduction by saying "I am...," followed by her first and last name if she is single. If she is married or considerably older than you, she could say, "I am, So and So’s wife." Providing her husband’s first and last name.
