In japanese culture, the japanese like to use adjectives when they describe their name. Here are the most common:
This is a standard name-ender.
This is for younger boys/adults. If you are unfamiliar with someone, 〜さん(san) is the way to go.
This is used for girls or younger children, like a younger sibling. The person’s name can be shorten when used (ed-chan).
This is used for teachers. This also can be used by doctors (Medic or PHD).
〜せんぱい(senpai) This is used for higher-rank students. Like someone higher-grade or more skilled.
