Non-Korean Names in Hangul

Index



Introduction

Often times, what people want is how they can write their names in Hangul. So, here I will try to collect those answers.

One of the problem with names is that their pronunciation can vary depending on the languages and the regions. I will try to include those variations with notes as best as I can.

Another issue is that most Koreans have a preference of how a "Hangul-ized" non-Korean names should look like even if that's not how it's actually pronounced. I will try to differentiate these as well.

Also, it's often not easy to find the correct pronunciations, so I am doing my best to match it as closely as possible.

These are the notations I used here if the pronunciations can be different.

  • AmEn: American English pronunciation using MCT.
  • CmKr: Common Hangul spelling when "AmEn" looks funny.
  • BiKr: Common Hangul spelling for Bibical names.
  • De: German pronunciation.
  • Es: Spanish pronunciation.
  • Fr: French pronunciation.
  • It: Italian pronunciation.
