I was just wondering if instead of translating my name phonetically into kanji or katakana I could create my own Japanese name and if so, does anyone know any sites that could give me some common words used in names.

I for the longest time during introductions said my last name was "Saru" because I thought it was the closest thing to the German pronouncuation 'Say-er' but what I didn't realize was I had, while not having had known Saru was Japanese for monkey, on countless occasions said my name was "Monkey Josh" (since I had put my family before first name,)

, but that's what inhaling spray-paint fumes will do to you kids, so remember to wear your masks!.
