मेरी हज़र

I learned to write my name in Hindi yesterday, and since blogger has a way that you can translate what you write into other languages, here it is:

मेरी

I had to figure it out, because I had to spell "mery" to get it to write my name properly.

I can't quite get blogger to write my last name
हाइज़र
I actually spelled "ha-i-zer" to get that. "Haizer" gets you हिज़र, which isn't quite correct. But I'm going to trust the human, rather than the computer in this instance. That's usually a good idea when dealing with translations. And the human in question isn't just someone who just took a class in the language but was actually born and raised in that country.

Anyway, languages are fascinating. Especially those that do not use Latin characters.
