Hello, I've just started the Esperanto tree (I joined Duolingo not so long ago and it's awesome). I was wondering how to figure out my Esperanto name since I don't think mine works well in Esperanto and I noticed people create their name...my name is Casey. Thanks.

Kejsio seems to work pretty well and capture all the sounds in your name.

Some peoples names don't work, I'm most definitely no authority and all I know how to do is have a measure of fun with it. But why not try something like Kasi, Kaĉjo (Which could be a nickname), Or... Kaseo? Who knows ;) Mine for what it's worth is Jon, or Joĉjo

Thanks! I like Kaĉjo the most out of what you wrote.

Kaĉjo sounds a lot like Kaĉo (Porrage). That might not be a deal killer.

Don't forget the accent! Look it up and you'll see why that's important as well. ;-)

Lunjo! Well, since you went there, I'll say that once you've looked it up, you'll be on your way to appreciate this video, for which I had the honor of writing and performing the background music.

Well, we don't want any trusting beginners ending up with awkward Esperanto names, do we?

I hadn't seen that video before. Mi ridegas nun.

You should consider 'Kejso'.. mine is Janjo (for Yanior)

Be careful, the -njo is indicative of a female nickname.

Gosh, don't make an argument of this.... It's just that it fits perfectly with my name (Yanior :: yah--nee-awr) (Janjo :: yah--nee-oh)

(thus, obviously I know it tends to girl's nick-names, but it is not really indicative of anything as StevenRice1 said. And don't waste your time arguing about it, 'cuz I'm not changing it).

How do you deal with hyphenated names like mine? Do you add -o to the ending of each part like Jano-Olofo? It sounds pretty silly to me. Do you keep the hyphen? Or maybe it would be Janolofo?
