In Kihā́mmic ages are expressed by putting the appropriate pronoun in the allative case, following this by the number of years, as well as "û́tû" [year] (declined appropriately). This is preceded by "sád" [to be] conjugated according to tense and number. For example:
I am 18 years old: Ékōsúim 18 ûtámī
She was 22 years old: Gā́nô tazū́m 22 ûtámī
In Kihā́mmic and Panlaffic culture people's names are constructed quite differently from most other forms of naming. There are four parts to a name: two personal names and a "family" name made up of a patronymic and a matronymic.
Personal names conform to normal case requirements. Since patronymics and matronymics are all ready in the genitive case so a hyphen is added then the appropriate case ending is added. The patronymic and matronymic are joined together with a hyphen. Today there is a mixture of names that come from Old Kihā́mmic and as well as adapted newer names from Europe. When foreign names are used in Kihā́mmic the names are either translated if there is an equivalent in Kihā́mmic or simply transliterated. An example name is that of Kihāmát's current Premier:
Īzván Rátkan Yôfánī-Mā́rī
[iːzˈvan ˈɹatkan joˈfaniːˈmɑːɾiː]
This name translates as:
Īzván Rátkan, son of Yôfán, son of Mā́re
For an example of an older pre-European names such as that of the former royal families, who also had a surname, which was the name of the royal house to which they belonged. For example the last King of Kihāmát was named:
Yégan Gázāron Úktef Pátûnī-Kélþī Lanəkámī
[ˈjegan ˈgazɑːɾɒn ˈʊktɛf ˈpatuniː ˈkɛɫðiː lanəˈkamiː]
King Gázāron Úktef, son of Pátûn, son of Kelþá, House of Lánəkû
