Why does the Japanese transcription doesn't sound like my first name?

Due to their phonetics that contains less phonemes as English, Japanese people tend to distort the sounds they listen. Therefore some transcriptions are very different from the original first name, and some aren't.

That said, some first names may have different pronunciations. So if it happens we didn't take into account the pronunciation of your first name, please » Write us and ask us to add it.
