(Bet there's loads of past threads / pages on this ...)

Just a quick summary.

-san is the all-purpose polite name suffix. Most times you can't
go wrong with it unless you stick it on your own name.

-kun used for a) Someone at the workplace (or similar) who is usually younger/has less senior position to you. b) For young men.

-kun can be used with women if they fit category 'a'.

Please at least look around the page before asking next time, Jonas. The above thread was referenced in a similiar question on "san" just yesterday in fact. ;)
