According to this my name would be tekurinrinkiari. I always thought it was "Denisu"


デニス (Denisu) is how you'd say your real name in Japanese using Katakana (and the romaji reading)... this is just a chart someone made that makes no sense.

And I thought my Japanese teacher was wrong. I didn't think it made sense. According to the chart people would have very long names.

Wow... This is... kind of moronic. But I get it. It's all good fun, it just so happens that the set up of the game is so very flawed. Anyway, I have a unique circumstance. My actual name (first name) is George, but everyone aside from people I've just met and/or work/school related relationships calls me Barrett, my middle name. That said, I go by Barrett 99% of the time. So, by that awesome logic, my "Japanese name" (rather, some psychotic gaijin who is pretending to be Japanese and is actually ignorant of all things Japanese) is Tukashishikuchichi. So ridiculous... and funny. :lol:

Now here's my 'actual name' in Japanese: Jikumoshijiku. Still fairly ridiculous and doesn't sound like a Japanese name at all. This game is full of folly.

This is so ironic, about the same time this post was started I was approached by a friend with the exact same chart and she thought it was for-real. I hope no one here thinks it is.

Just a heads up for anybody who thinks this might be real, it's not. You name is usually spelled the same in Japanese minus a few changes to keep it sounding the same. It's also advisable to shorten your name since the Japanese shorten everything Television -> Terebi (Way shorter).

For example, if your name is William you would first shorten it to Will (to make everybody happy) then convert it to Japanese wiiru (ウィル). This chart was either made by somebody for fun and games or by someone who doesn't know anything about the Japanese language.

Basically to convert your name to Japanese you simply rewrite it using the Japanese alphabet Katakana and Extended Katakana but in a way that sounds like how it should be pronounced, not spelled. It's really a no brainier and no Japanese knowledge is required.

Carl -> Kaaru (The way the Japanese "R"'s are pronounced makes this sound similar to Carl)
Cindy -> Shindy (You see how this sounds really close to cindy even though it completely spelled wrong and slightly pronounced wrong. That's what your aiming for)

In the end you can always go to Google Translate which can translate a handfull of common names.

If you want to get creative, you can search jisho.org for native Japanese names that sound similar or spelled the same as your name in Japanese.
