Hello. Nice to meet you. I am Jonathan Edward Gibbard. Please be kind to me.
Ohayo. Hajimemashite. Watashi wa Jonasan Edowa^do Giba^do desu. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu. (I hope that's correct so far XD)
I tried the link from the first post and it gave me this name:
中島 Nakashima (center of the island) 裕典 Yusuke (abundant rule)
I originally attempted to translate my actual English name to Japanese (ジョナサン エドワード ギバード) as you also may see above, although I'm not too sure on the accuracy. My christian/first name 'Jonathan' comes from Hebrew, originally spelt 'Yonatan', & means, "Yahweh (God) has given". My middle name 'Edward' comes from Old English, originally spelt 'Ēadweard', is from my Grandpa's name, & means "happy/prosperous guard". My surname 'Gibbard' comes from Old German, originally spelt 'Gebhardt', & is thought to refer to the Hebrew name 'Gabriel', which means, "God is my strong man/hero".
As you can see I'm very interested in name meanings & origins haha XD
I have a question btw, in ordering your name in a Japanese way (surname first), what happens with middle name/s? Would it go: surname, christian/first name, middle name/s? I know it's generally accepted for westerners to say their name as normal, but I'd still like to know regardless, thankyou.
EDIT: oh I almost forgot, which would be considered as my surname concerning, "中島 Nakashima (center of the island) 裕典 Yusuke (abundant rule)"? Thanks
