1. How to Write Your Name in Arabic

Top

 

Arabic speakers use the Arabic alphabet to write English names. To write your English name in Arabic, first you need to know the 28 letters.

The easiest way is to find an Arabic letter that corresponds to the pronunciation of your Arabic name. For example, if your name is “Maya,” you can use the letter م, for the “m” sound, ا for “aa” sound, ي for “ya” sound, then ا for “aa” sound. You just need to put them together and write مايا for “Maya.”
