Tocayo means 'namesake', so when someone has the same name as you, you'd say “eres mi tocayo“!
Here are some more examples.
- Ella es mi tocayo, ¡que guay!
She is my namesake, that's amazing!
- ¿Cómo te llamas? ¿Jesús? ¡Somos tocayos!
What’s your name? Jesús? Me too!
- Tengo el mismo nombre como Ronald Reagan. Somos tocayos.
I have the same name as Ronald Reagan. We are namesakes.
