Holy crap.

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:

道格拉斯 (dàogélāsī)

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.
