Links: Your name in... and information about names
Links to websites which show you how to write your name in a
variety of alphabets and writing systems, and to other sites
that provide information about the meanings and origins of names.
Please note that there is a difference between translating
a name and transliterating a name. The former involves
finding the meaning of the name and then trying to find a name with the
same or a similar meaning in another language. The latter involves using
a different writing system to represent the sounds of the name.
For example the name Anna comes from the Hebrew name חַנָּה
(Hannah), which means "favor" or "grace". Transliterations of
Anna in other writing systems include Άννα (Greek),
Анна (Cyrillic), Աննա
(Armenian), ანა (Georgian), حنة
(Arabic), and アナ (Japanese Katakana).
Names with similar meanings to Anna, i.e. translations,
include Amara (Igbo), Armo (Finnish), فضل (Fadl - Arabic),
लावण्या (Lavanya - Sanskrit), and
سناز (Sanaz - Persian).
