Hopefully someone on here will be able to help me resolve a language (grammar) question that came up at work today.
Which of the two sentences below is correct?
- It’s much more than our names that makes us stand out.
- It’s much more than our names that make us stand out.
I think the first one is correct as I believe that 'our names' is effectively treated as a singular concept and therefore makes (the singular verb) is the right choice. This caused some debate in the office though!
A definitive answer on this would be fantastic. Many thanks in advance for your help.
