i, being able to read kanji, see lots of really funny words on
people's body and when i ask them what it means, the meaning doesn't
usually match what's actually written on them. i do henna at fairs
and many ask for their name in Kanji, i don't 'translate' for them
because it's plain silly. If you really like your name in east asian
language, try Hiragana japanese (1 of the 3 forms of
japanese "letters"). that one is closest to be like alphabets
(arranged by sound).
