 I'm taking a Modern Greek class and we've just learned to drop the final "s" on male names. My professor mentioned that this is always the case when a person is introducing themselves and that if there was time he would go over it but he did not. I was curious so I tried to google it to find out the reasoning but all I found was a forum where someone said it happens but not to ask why. 

So can anyone explain to me why the "s" is dropped from the end of male names?
