Hi everyone,

We'll need the help of everyone on this one! I think it should be interesting to learn Rita Kuti-Kis in Hungarian, Ai Sugiyama in Japanese etc.

Hi oggie, that's Hungarian isn't it?

Hi Mikey, OMG what freaky language did you translate Lindsay's name into I can't work it out?

Actually it is Serbian. It would probably be the same in Hungarian, although I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks oggie. I think Hungarian might look different from that, also someone once told me that if it is indeed a Hungarian name it's pronounced "shelesh". But she's originally from Serbia, so that's the way it would've been written.

Hi luv-ya,

Is Ai just the kanji for love? Why is there a kanji for Sugiyama when it's not a word?

well, ai does stand for love,
and her name also stands for something else,
ai being love is more widely known
sugi- is a kinda tree
yama- means mountain

also Yoon-Jeong Cho
무뭏쵀
趙倫貞

both Japanese and Korean have sound words,
also characters in Chinese,
coz both languages are derived from Chinese

They're written exactly the same.

Iva Majoli as well.
Mirjana Lučić
Goran Ivanišević
Ivan Ljubičić
Jelena Kostanić
Silvija Talaja
Karolina Sprem
Ivana Abramović
Mario Ančić

All Croatians (Svi Hrvati)
All from Croatia (Svi iz Hrvatske)

These are the ones of the top of my head. Again, I'm not sure it'll print it right, but I see the 'č' in Matevžič, so it just might.

I see, so her Sugiyama is written as a combination of two words. Hmm, I only see squares for Cho's name in Korean - guess I need to download a font for that.
