Your name in hebrew script

Postby Javier » 2007-01-29, 14:42

Copying the idea from other threads :P

My name is Javier, I think it would be written in Hebrew as:

[rp]הביער

or

חביער[/rp]

according to the dialect of Spanish, I put the ע to separate the i and the e, but I am not sure whether is correct or not.

Thanks

I'd write Chavier's name חווייר. It's better to use double vav to transliterate 'v' from European languages. And I prefer יי instead of יא, because the latter looks like Chaviar.
Using the letter ע for 'e' is only correct in Yiddish... in Hebrew it's a pure consonant.

And Stacey is much easier: סטייסי :-)

Edit: I see that the 'i' is separated from the 'e' in Chavier, so in that case it would indeed be חוויאר.

Emilius wins :)

The ayin in Yiddish would be wrong there, the ayin signifies the "eh" sound, whereas the alef signifies "ah"

Well, not much to discuss about my name, since it’s been corrected and confirmed by at least half a dozen Hebrew speakers in all these years, so I only add it out of curiosity:

מרסל would be Marcel right?

That's how I would write it.

That would be an English Laura. :) rachel90 is Italian, so I'd suggest לאורה instead. At least that's what the Hebrew Wikipedia uses for לאורה פאוזיני.

Following European Portuguese pronunciation, my name should be written לואיש, as לואיש פיגו or לואיש הראשון מלך פורטוגל. However, most Israelis tend to believe this is a mistake, as they're more used to seeing the English "Lewis" or Spanish "Luis" transliterated. Therefore, I don't bother trying to explain and usually write it as לואיס. ;)

So your name is pronounced more like "luiʃ"? :o

I take it you've given IPA transliterations (with the apostrophe indicating stress)? :y:
In that case:
Stefan - סטפן
Jelma - ילמה
Annika - אניקה

Oh, another request ...

Can you point out any resemblance that any foreign name that might have to some word or idea in hebrew?

For example, my name חוויאר does remind you of something, sounds it like *something*, has a nice/bad sound? What do you think?

Thanks ;)

I'm afraid that the name Javier only reminds me of Caviar, which isn't a Hebrew term either :)
Some names of course may have such an association, either accidentally or for being indeed of Hebrew origin.

Yes. Fortunately some Israelis can spell it properly ;)

My name (fully Jakob Krystian Peregrin Benedikt Schleicher) could be transcribed in two ways - if it comes to meanings:
יעקב נוצרי צלין ברוך הזוחל
If it's about pronouciation:
יקופ קריסטיין פרגרין בנדיקט שלייכר
Any mistakes? Which version is better, or would you say that a mixture of both would be best?
Not that it would be of great importance, normally I use only Jakob Schleicher.
