How I did it: I found a website that let's you download a file (for a price, of course) with your name in Japanese. Although researching this (as I can't remember where I got it from), I have found a name translator dictionary. You just type in your name and press 'translate' and it'll give you the characters needed, for free :)
It also gives you a handy pronounciation of your name (how it would be said in Japanese), which is also pretty cool. Read how I did it… 3 years ago
my name is Wei Suan what name japan?? plz tell me 4 years ago
How I did it: I was taking Japanese anyway, and the first thing we did was learn hiragana and katakana, the phonetic writing systems. Hiragana is used for native words and katakana is used for foreign words, including names, or emphasis. There are only 44 written phonemes from 'a' to 'n', so it really doesn't take long to become familiar with them.
Then we had to learn how words are 'Japanized' to fit their pronunciation scheme. Japanese has no 'si' or 'ti' sounds (they become 'shi' and 'chi' respectively), and no consonant clusters, so vowels have to be inserted between the consonants. There is no 'v' sound either (this becomes something like 'bui' instead depending on the sound after it). So a name like Steve becomes more like "suchiibu" when it is written in Japanese.

Japanese has held a special fascination for me for a long time. Just seeing all those symbols in cartoons I used to watch as a child filled me with awe and curiosity. Here’s my chance 5 years ago

Its pretty cool, but out of the 3 kinds of Japanese Kana, foreign words are written in the simplest one, Katakana, so our names don’t really look quite as cool as most Japanese writing you see. Unless you have a Japanese name. But it’s still cool. 6 years ago

The japanese have two alphabets. One for their own words. And one for foreign words mostly, this includes names of foreign people. When I was studying japanese, one of our projects was to set up a table and have people come up and ask us to write their names in japanese on bookmarks. I had to learn so many names. And often misspelled them, but they came out beatifully because Japanese is beautiful. 6 years ago
