My name is Armen Dzhagaryan (I don't really know how could I have my last name in Japanese.. lol.. espatially with those Dzh... )
so.... maybe this..
あれめん Armen. (Areman typed in)
でざがりゃん Dzhagaryan (Dezagaryan... typed in)
I'm so curious how your name should be pronounced, especially Dzha
If you pronounce Armen in American or British English style, I'd suggest to translate it as アーメン instead of アルメン.
As for -ryan part, I think リアン is more common. It's like ハンガリアン for Hungarian.
If you prefer your local language pronunciation....maybe it's hard for you to describe the proper pronunciation and it's hard for me to suggest what's appropriate Japanese.
(If you prefer French pronunciation, maybe I can suggest and Armen may be アルマン).
yea.. that Dzha part is interesting to me as well.
It can be also written as Dza (in english).. just z is more stronger.
In Japanese there no sounds like "D"..... right?
As hippo mentioned, we have D sound. But unfortunately, Japanese don't have DZA sound. As for DZ sound, modern Japanese only have DZI = JI = DJI (I intend these three are the same sound) that has a vowel I attached but no other DZ sounds.
Anyway, normally when we translate DZ sound into Japanese, we would choose Z or J.
So, if you speak your name with English accent, I'd suggest:
Armen Dzhagaryan as アーメン ザガリアン that sounds like za-ga-ri-a-n.
And the second choice may be アーメン ジャガリアン that souds like ja-ga-ri-a-n.
...If you want to be closer, ヅァガリアン may be another choice but it doesn't seem regular Japanese notation.
If you want to speak R sound in Armen stronger (like in German or French, probably stronger than in American English), you may want to choose アルメン for Armen instead.
