    So I'm working for a project that we have to deliver tomorrow about countries and stuff. I picked the country Japan ( NARUTO!!! [​IMG] ) and would like to start the project with what my name is in japanese. The problem is that I come from Norway and have a really weird name [​IMG] I would be really glad if someone could show me what my name is in japanese. My real name is Atle [​IMG]

    First you would need to express how your name is pronounced.

    I'm kind of disappointed that you're doing it because of Naruto, but oh well, heh.

    Your name written in Japanese would be アトル (Atoru) unless it's pronounced in some special way. If there is a famous person with the name (Atle Selberg), you can just search for him/her on Wikipedia and switch to Japanese.

    Thanks for the replies so far! [​IMG]

    Its kinda hard to say how it is pronounced, but I think its like this:

    First you pronounce At just like the word At. The last part, Le, is a little hard. It gets kinda like Leh. [​IMG]

    Here's a Google Translator link. Just press the "Listen" button. [​IMG]

    Despite the fact that you like Naruto...I'm going to help you.

    First tip Don't EVER use Google Translate, it's inaccurate.

    Second, your name is pronounced Awt-lay.

    I'm using this site right now to learn some Japanese. It has a page "Names in Japanese" but it uses Google Translate. Machomuu gave the answer already, but maybe this site could help you with your project.
