So that's what my name means...

10/9/11

I was given a printout at work the other day that had my name in Kanji and then had a bunch of Japanese translations of my name. I scanned it but apparently my blog hates pdf files and wont let me upload it! I'll share some of my favorites with you...

phonetic & denotative transcription: a good and elegant wax tree
phonetic & eulogistic transcription: one who is considerate and heroic; tender dew drops on a snail; a considerate nightingale in the ivy
attention getting transcription: a stupid wild duck in the ivy; a wolf which chases a mule
brainteaser: a short mule Note: "Lau" =low in Japanese

So as you can see, my name is very...diverse...and I'm sure noble. In another language perhaps.
