    My full name is stupidly uneek as my father thought that vowels where a unnecessary extra , and my grandfather would write the short version with a few letters mixed up just to annoy my father hence my FB name

    Yup! And I did a search and heaps of posts come up- for all things- user names, users names, celebrity names, and I'm glad to see suggestions for baby names, and announcements.

    I think my name is just a classic girls name, wayyyy overused. It was number one popular girls name for about 10 years so I have ALWAYS known others. I seem to come across less now I am older and working, but as school we were everywhere.

    DH loves the name Chloe for if we have a girl, but I can't stand the idea of naming a name that has now just become super popular, for all the reasons above!

    I never think of that as a biblical name. It's also a traditional Japanese name. So while foreign names/words are normally spelt with katakana the alphabet that they use for foreign words. You could spell your name with their traditional alphabet or even the kungi symbols developed by the Chinese. The nerd in me thinks that's cool

    If I right thinking your name is what it is this is what it looks like なおみ

    Correct

    In the bible, mother of Sarah.
    In Japanese, more traditionally a male name- however I do like the japanese meaning- straight and beautiful (I'm not so straight though )

    But.. isn't your translation above Hirogana?
