Is there a comprehensive/official list of Chinese transliterations of given names (i.e. first names)? I know that I can transliterate on my own, but such a database is useful because:
- I can look up common transliterations
- I can be aware of historical precedents (e.g. official transliteration of names of famous people)
- I can see cases where there is more than one common way to transliterate (perhaps a way that I had not thought of before)
Is there a database of Chinese transliteration of names? The database of names should ideally cover common Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Indian, and European given names. The database should also be easily parsed by computer software.
