maybe he's worried that when he introduces himself as "crocket" people will think he's a croquette?
I don't understand why you think a fake Japanese name is necessary for that. It'll be confusing from the start.To make long story short, I'm looking for a unique long-lasting identity that I can use to communicate with japanese people and other groups.
Yup. What is it, anyway?It probably wouldn't be easy for most people to empathize with my motivation.
Yup. My son had no choice in his family name, nor his given name. My wife decided that he and she would have my family name, so it was up to her and me to choose the given name. I picked one that was easy to pronounce for my American family and friends, and one which I thought would not cater to nickname-building (I was wrong). I got lucky when my wife selected the kanji; it matched his personality perfectly and my own feelings about certain things, as well.Sorry if I asked too much. I recognize that I am delving deep into the naming business without gaining much.
