    It's the same for the 3 greetings-"Sawatdee ". And to make it more polite you add "kha" at the end, since you are a female speaker (I assume because of your name; male speakers would say "krap"). That's the equivalent of "po" in the Philippines, which you indicated as your location.

    Bruce, this would work. = when pronouncing your name it will sound like "brute" but with out the hard "t" ending. With it being written showing your name with a silent "s". A lot of Thai's will see it and know when you say your name that it does end with an "s".
    The "s" sound is difficult for Thai's to pronounce at the end of words.

    The spelling of "Bruce" offered out by "NatetheGreat" would work; however....

    I'm all for keeping things how thaiz are used to seeing them..

    Why not just spell it the way thaiz spell Bruce in the name of the actor Bruce Willis? Every thai in this country knows him by the way his name is spelled in thai...

    i think you can use swasdee dton chaao or even arun sawat for good morning specifically. Maybe its common to just use sawasdee any time, but I like saying so. And if you do too, there will be two of us using that word

    Re: Help writing name in Thai

    Hi, I am planning on tattooing my mom's, sister's, and brother's name in Thai. I was told that their translations are:

    Dahli

    չ Yasmin

    Presley

    Could anyone please tell me if this is correct?

    Re: Help writing name in Thai

    i think presley should be written as i got more google hits for elvis presley with that spelling than
    and then i found that the ee vowel in yasmin used seemed to be typically short and not long. Again while searching on google. so Թ seemed more used than չ. meaning that its more spelt like jamin than jasmeen
    but of course this is not an authoritative way of concluding.

    Does Dahli look right though? Google popped up "Darlie" for me
