What do you need translated? Your name or an actual phrase? If you want a phrase you probably want to get an expert speaker as an online translation is not going to be reliable

Simple.. have it written in English?

Why would you want something you can't even read ? My bad...

What's your name? As you are going from one alphabet to another there is going to be some variation in the transliteration. There is no "correct" way for this but generally it will be spelled phonetically in a sort of acceptable way.

I'm taking a stab in the dark it's Katie. :whistling:

because it looks artistic and total strangers dont have to know what they're looking at at first glance I would think.

Katie good luck with your tattoo sweetie, if I could speak hebrew I'd help you

I wonder what kind of reception you'd get if you were to ask at a synagogue...

I cant translate it into german for you :thumbsup:

קטי is Katie. What's your granddad's name. There was a similar thread to this in the past and a few people chipped in.

you're welcome sweetie.

I understand perfectly what you mean, someone sees a name on a tattoo and they start jumping to conclusions and before you know it they've created a whole fictitious life for you!

Hebrew looks so gorgeous too.

They do. :thinking: I've had a name tattoed on me for 14 years now and no stories that i know of............i'm missing out. :-(

My grandads name is alan



It would probably be something like אלן. What have other ones have you seen come up? It's tough to do English names because it is a different alphabet so it's not like a letter for letter variation.

My husband has our childrens names on his chest. Drives me nuts when some strange woman grabs him just to look at his tattoo.. Not usually jealous but those are my KIDS names. Wish he'd have used some kind of code now!!

yes precisely

No I don't think a tattoo parlour would have books of English names transliterated to Hebrew...

אלן appears to be the accepted way to spell Alan though. Check the link below for a book cover for author Alan Spence and you can see that is how they spelled it there.

does this work?http://www.stars21.com/translator/english_to_hebrew.html



I tried that!!! then i also went on one further down google page, typed the same thing and got different symbols.... : /

it says alan is written

אלן ( they start from the rhs also )

Same as admin says

hmm i dont know what to do! thanks admin for that =)



tbh I don't think there's much question if that is what is printed on a Hebrew book cover for an English author name.

Where r u having the tattoo done? I'm getting a new one soon too....
