This question already has an answer here:
I'm certain plurals are discussed endlessly, but I haven't located an answer to this specific usage:
In the following sentences I believe the first one is correct because it discusses a singular list or group containing multiple names, where the second one treats the group as if it is "multiple groups." Which sentence is correct?
- Once you get the software set up, here is our names: Bob, Joe, Sam.
- Once you get the software set up, here are our names: Bob, Joe, Sam.
Thank you and kind regards!
Edited to add the list after the colon. So now that the singular "list" is shown do the answers below still apply? Is "2" still correct?
