Kanji for my name? or is it...

Postby Tryforceful » Fri 08.05.2005 2:32 pm

Hey all at this fabulous page I just discovered twenty minutes ago!


I'm an avid novice of Japanese, and don't really know any kanji at all by memorization (yet!), so I've been making do with using translator websites, etc., to try and get their meaning. On this (http://www.takase.com/Names/NameInJapaneseR.htm) page that I found a while ago, it says that my name ( Rob ) comes from kimei meaning "bright fame" and shows a lil Kanji pic of it as well:

It's only an image though, and I wanted to reproduce the characters in text. I already found "" (mei, roughly the "fame" part), so I assume the first half of this... jukugo, is it(?), translates to something like "bright" and is read ki, but... I can't find it anywhere!! I'm sorry the pic's so small, but that's all they have. I've tried searching by radical, (apparent) stroke count, and everything... does that kanji really exist??

(oh, and if not, what IS my name in kanji, if you know!)

Many Thanks in Advance,

Tryforceful :D

To reproduce these kanji in text, draw them in the Microsoft IME Pad. It will let you handwrite them with your mouse and then it will give you the kanji that look like these. Choose the correct ones and click on them, and they will appear in your MS Word document.

I went to that site, and my name wasn't even in there! It's a rare name and they had something close. Oh well...^_^'

Gakusha:

I actually tried that, and didn't get results that looked like it at all... maybe I just have bad drawing skills? :)
