"We are, alas, entirely unqualified to tell you whether this works perfectly, but we're awfully pleased with what we found here: Type in your first and last name, and the system hands back a transliteration in katakana (the Japanese “alphabet” derived from kanji and used to write foreign words), complete with pronunciation so you can hear what it's chosen to represent you phonically. The site also offers translation into kanji for a small fee, and there's a nice FAQ with info on kanji, katakana and hiragana (the third Japanese writing system) with nifty resources for learners."

"When I was studying overseas my friends would often badger me to translate their names into Japanese. They loved it when I wrote their names in Asian-style katakana or kanji. Honestly, I was surprised that they got so excited over such a trivial thing - but I got a kick out of it anyway.

That being the case, I’m sure non-Japanese people are going to love Japanese-Name-Translation. This site translates English names into katakana, and for a small fee will do the same translation into kanji. So you may find that the person who is bugging you might actually be giving you an idea for a great new business." (Translated from Japanese)
