Write Your Name in Hindi!
 

Indian people use the Hindi alphabet to write English names. To write your English name in Hindi, first you need to know the basics of the alphabet.

The easiest way is to find a Hindi letter that corresponds to the pronunciation of your Hindi name. For example, if your name is “Maya,” look for the character for ma, which is मा, then the other character for ya, which is या. You just need to put them together and write माया for “Maya.”

Here are some English names in the Hindi alphabet.

  • Noah (नूह)

  • Michael (माइकल)
  • Daniel (डैनियल)

Sandhana = sun - da - na


The 'a' in dha & na is like saying 'a' in "far"
