    All I meant was that was by giving your name kanji, it would give it meaning(s), not the actual non-Japanese meaning of it translated. (However, that's what takase.com is trying to do - translate the english meaning(s) of your name [i.e. Like one of the meanings of my name is 'solitary'] to Japanese, and pick the closest translation that sounds like the English name.) For instance, my third sensei gave all three of her children's name kanji - despite them all being non Japanese names

    I think i see what you tried to do. You took the sylabols of the katakana and then found the kanji to match is sylabol. Even if the katakana could be coverted to kanji that's not how you would do it. But like i have say in earlier posts you can't put katakana words in kanji. The kanji you wrote above doesn't really man anything nor if you try to translate it does it make any sense.
    Oh no, you misunderstood me. I didn't just make that up -- that seriously is America's kanji. It's using ateji kanji. And true, 'beikoku' does mean America as well - but hey, who said something could only have one name? ^_^;

    Oh, and you need'nt go too far deep into the language - alot of what you've said I've been taught already ^^

    So then this form of kanji lets you take only the sound of a word and then change it to kanji by maching the sylabols. Quite frankly i find that utterly retarded. It's like a fake kanji system.

    Stil, no matter what you say,l i stand by what i've witten before.

    And quite frankly whether you have learned about what ive said or not, from what i've read doesn't seem like you have.

    Well, I'm sorry you feel that way - you'll have to take it up on the past Japanese I'm afraid. But no matter how fake you think it is, it's the way the ball rolls.

    Being a bit pretentious don't you think? ^_^; Again, sorry you feel that way.

    It would be クリステン or "Kurisuten" . If you're picky about the pronunciation it can also be "Kurisutin" ('in' sound instead of 'ehn' sound like the first)
