I'm thinking if your name is 피오나 in Hangul
A bit uncertain about that
Can you recognise this character?
Nope, it's not shāng. It is a 囧 with a hat which 囧ed its chin off!

My name is Fiona/فيونة/פיונה. I think the Hebrew and Arabic are correct, if not, please let me know. If you would be willing to translate my name into any other languages/scripts please feel free to do so as well, I'd love you forever (and give you lots of cookies!!!). :D

Anyways, I am Fiona, and I'm an 18 year old currently living in the United States. I was born and grew up in The Netherlands, but I have been in the US for about 8 years now. I grew up bilingually, as a lot of Europeans do, speaking mostly Dutch but learning English from my American mom. I took two languages for granted until I moved to America, and saw how many people here only knew one language!

Since I've moved here, my interest in languages has definitely expanded... I'm still fluent in only English and Dutch, but I have been studying Spanish for the last several years now, and am very interested in learning many other languages, including Arabic, Hebrew, German, ASL, Japanese and Russian.

I've frequented language forums for several years now to try to learn more about my target languages... and I'm happy to finally be a part of this one now.

Glad to meet you all! Tot ziens! Adiós!

Welcome to the new Omniglot forum!

(I thought it was フィオナ, but checked and found that it had a choon-fu)

Actually <フィオナ> is correct.
