Also! In your sig, like mos people showed there's no spaces in writing japanese. I used to think it had spaces ^^; Though this rule only abides unless you're using romaji... I think ^^; lol I'm a n00b :P Well it looks right from what I saw.

There aren't spaces in Japanese, ever. Unless in kiddey grade books, and even then, spaces are abandonded pretty soon, because there just aren't any spaces in written japanese. Want to know why? Because, once you learn Kanji, you won't need spaces. By just skimming the kanji, and just seeing the hiragana beside it in a flash, you will correctly read a sentence, if you are proficient enough. In english, we need to read the whole word, even though we also just look at the consonants, and fill in the vowels as we see fit.

Try to get those kanji into your head as soon as possible, because texts in full hiragana are annoying to read and to make. :D

Actually, both are wrong. The first one looks like it says "I am a name." The second one more so. If you have a foreign name, you don't write it in hiragana. You write it in katakana. ニック, not にっく. Also, you would use kanji for writing things like "わたし" (私) and "なまえ" (名前).

私の名前はニックです。
Watakushi no namae wa Nikku desu. (Grammatically correct, but sounds rather stiff and formal)

僕はニックです。
Boku wa Nikku desu. (Casual. Please note; 'boku' is a male term.).

Whats with everyone trying to put 名前 in?!!! is it because it sounds like 'name'?

the sentence is ' AB です'.

 は アミール です

I think everyone is getting confused with the two sentences and is mixing them together. ;)

Yes. That's what boys say. In a more formal situation you would say 私 - watashi or watakushi. In a casual situation you could just say "アミールです".
