My Korean Name Package
Name Transliteration
Many people do not realize that Korean names are written with Chinese characters. Please read Korean Names if you are not familiar with the subject.
Example: William
Hanja Hangul
Hanja not included in this package. Hanja literally means "Chinese characters." If the above is the type of characters you like, you want Chinese Name Packages instead. Hangul is visually meaningless, merely phonetic.
Four Digital Artworks
Three full-color JPG files (1024 x 768) for use as screen saver or desktop background.
One Black-and-white GIF file

Hangul Script

Many Customers Also Bought
My Chinese Name Basic Package
This is also known as the Korean hanja name. It's the main kind of Korean name. Almost all Korean people have names that are exclusively hanja (han- "Chinese," -ja"characters"). Thus, a Korean name, when written, is simply a Chinese name. There merely remains a difference in pronunciation when spoken.
Custom Embroidered Shirts
You can have your new Korean name embroidered onto a t-shirt, hooded sweatshirt, or a variety of other garments for just $35 to $50. The embroidered characters have richer colors and texture than iron-on or screen-printed designs used by others; they simply can't compare.
Receive a good Korean hangul name from a trusted source for just $50.00
Turnaround Time
Usually ships in 5-7 business days. This amount of time is needed to thoroughly and correctly transliterate your name. Unlike other companies, we strongly believe that your name's quality is far more important than instant "art" or rushed projects.
This package is designed for you who don't have access to a knowledgeable and trustworthy fluent Korean speaker and would like your name transliterated into Korean hangul. Customers often purchase this as a separate addition to recommended hanja (Chinese character) packages. The hangul package includes transliteration and digital artwork files.

Chinese naming requires years of training and extensive knowledge of Chinese culture, but any fluent Korean speaker can phonetically transliterate your name into hangul reasonably well.

However, a direct transliteration can have negative associations. A native speaker educated in Korea for at least twelve years can detect any such negative associations and alter the transliteration to eliminate them. Beginning or even intermediate Korean speakers cannot do this because they do not have enough vocabulary and the full understanding of the social and cultural connotations of Korean slang. Good Characters employs competent, well educated, native Korean translators.

What You Get:

Transliteration of your name into Korean hangul characters by one of our Korean translators.

Four artwork files of your hangul name for use on your computer or Web site. All files PC- and Mac-compatible:
