Japanese Name Translator

A neat website allows you to translate an American name to Japanese - very handy if you've ever had musings about an Japanese alter-ego in the Mr. Sparkle fashion. It even allows you to change the font of the characters, from Calligraphy to Traditional to Manga.

It's a fun way to pass the time, check it out. It even gives you a brief pronunciation guide. Apparently Agnes = Agunesu, though tough luck if you have a more obscure name, like Barack Obama, as the name index will redirect you to something closer to it's database ... like Brock, or Brooke. But hey, it's always useful for other politician's names, like Geroge Bush, which is pronounced Jooji - classic.

Your - Name - In - Japanese
