I started learning Chinese and I am choosing my Chinese name. Can you suggest something that matches the etymology or pronunciation of my real name?
My real name is Wojciech Rogulski. My first name Wojciech is pronounced “VOY-chekh” and the meaning is “He who is happy in battle” according to Wikipedia. My last name Rogulski is pronounced “RO-GUL-SKEE”. The etymology is not really clear.
The name is formed from two Slavic roots:
- wój (Slavic: voj), a root pertaining to war. It also forms words like wojownik ("warrior") and wojna ("war").
- ciech (from an earlier form, tech), meaning "joy".
Preserving etymology would be preferredd to only preserving pronunciation but it would be interesting to know all suggestions!
