QUIZ: The Real Japanese Name Generator

Katja just returned from Kyoto, where she had an amazing time and took over 300 photos. She has a few of them on her blog so far, with promises of more. She found this quiz, and you know I'm helpless.

My japanese name is:

猿渡 Saruwatari (monkey on a crossing bridge)
千秋 Chiaki (very fine in autumn)

Take your real japanese name generator! today!

Hmm, I got Autumn Book & Big Dipper of the Ocean. Funny, those aren't the kanji that are on my black belt.

Funny story: We get our names embroidered on our black belts by a Japanese woman. She simply transliterates the American name phonetically to do that. Since there are no "L" sounds in Japanese Leigh's actually reads "Reeeee."

Okay, my real life name was:
Yamashita:under the mountain
Michiyo:three thousand generations

SzélsőFa, however got this:
lino: rice field
