All names are transliterated, which means they are designed to sound roughly the same using Mandarin Chinese sounds and characters. If your name has a direct meaning, we can translate your name instead. Examples of names that can be translated, instead of transliterated include "Summer", "Joy" or "Angel".

There are 4585 names listed below - hopefully one of them is yours...
Please note that most of these names are done in Mandarin Chinese (not Japanese Kanji). They will sound a little strange when pronounced in Cantonese and will not really make sense in Japanese. We are now offering a limited number of first names in Japanese Katakana characters. However, due to certain Japanese language policies, we do not offer western names in Japanese Kanji (it's technically illegal in Japan to use Kanji for western names).
We tried to include most common English and Latin / Spanish names, but not all names are on the above list.
Courtesy of Chinese-Tools.com, here are some lists of names in other languages.
Try to find your name, click on it, and see what the Chinese characters for your name will look like.
Just post a name request if you need any of these names.
French | Italian | German | Arabic
Don't worry if your name in not on any of these lists. We can custom transliterate virtually any name into Chinese.
Please just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need your name transliterated. If you name is not common, please give me some clues as to how it is pronounced phonetically.
