If I'd to say: "His name is Francisco, but we call him Paco", would it be right to say: "Se llama Francisco pero nosotros se llamamos Paco"?
Nearly, but not quite...
"Se llama Francisco pero nosotros lo llamamos Paco."
When you're using the verb llamar to "call somone..." the verb is not reflexive anymore, we are now having a direct object pronoun: lo (him) or la (her).
I hope this clarified it.
Si, muchas gracias.
