An entertaining site at:-
http://www.japanesetranslator.co.uk/...e-in-japanese/
will translate your first name (not family or surnames though) into various formats of Japaneses characters:-
John Fowles

Gordon is

How's about that then Rex(the rez)

Rex's son is,I believe, ensconced in Japan

I've spent a lifetime correcting folk who insist my name is BrunO. Now I have to start teaching the Japanese too! Dash it!
LOL
PS. John, how about 'Bru' - will they take that?
