Some of you may or may not know that 道 has been my favorite kanji for years (hence, the icon here). Partly because of the way it looks, partly because of the meaning (with the semi-philosophical overtones). Well, wandering around the internet, I found out how to write my first name in Chinese on zhongwen.com.
Just guess what the first character is. I dare you.
Apparently, in full, Douglas is written:
Coincidence, or fate? Well, okay, I'm going with coincidence, myself. Also, apparently, this sort of transliterated name isn't used much, and at four syllables, it's hellish awkward, anyway. But maybe I could do 道格 instead.
As for my last name, though... No clue as to how to write it. Not even going to try.
