At least tell me your name! If you don't I'll call you something weird and shout it out.
If you ask, tell me yours first.
A thief has no name. A name could get you arrested. Any thief with a name is just third-rate.
So we're the same. I have no fixed name. Drifter, Hyakkimura, Dororo.
"Dororo?"... Sounds perfect for a professional thief like me. All right, it's mine! So I'm Dororo, you're Hyakkimura.
