I understand that a legitimate, though perhaps uncommon, way to introduce oneself in Latin is:
[Ego] sum Iulius
I also know that in Latin, as in English, people's names are often connected to their occupations. So in English we have the name Smith, and in Latin we have the name Faber.
In English, because of the rules relating to the use of articles, someone named "Smith" can safely use the "I am" construction to introduce himself: "I'm Smith" cannot refer to his profession (that would be "I'm a smith").
But Latin has no articles, of course, so I wonder how the following sentence, when spoken, would be understood:
Does this always mean "I am a/the craftsman"? Or is it ambiguous without context?
Put another way, if used in the context of introductions, would it be immediately understood as "My name is Faber," or would the listener wonder why the speaker is talking about his profession prior to providing his name?
