What is my name in Japanese?

You might be wondering “what is my name in Japanese?” or “how do I say my name in Japanese?”. If so, this lesson should be able to help. Once you know your name in Japanese, we will also teach you how to introduce yourself in Japanese.

There aren’t direct equivalents of foreign names in Japanese but foreign names can be sounded out using the sounds in the Japanese language creating a “closest pronunciation equivalent”. It doesn’t matter how the name is spelled but only how it is pronounced. Below are a number of common names sounded out in Japanese. Foreign names are written out in Katakana which is covered in Lesson 2. The ー character (called a “bou” ) elongates the vowel sound of the character in front of it. Remember, these are not actual Japanese names. Please don’t name your son “ma-ku” because you love Japan and the name “Mark”.

Note: You may notice certain combinations (such as シェ (she) or ティ (ti)) that aren’t part of the standard Katakana character set. These are special exceptions for foreign names only.
