Hindi/Translate my son's name


I would really like a tattoo of my son's name in Hindi.
His name is : Milan
pronounced as Mi (as in me) lan (not as in can)
You pronounce it as the Italian city Milan.

Thanks for your effort

ANSWER: Hello Martine

Thanks for the question and also for taking interest in getting a hindi tattoo.

Just a small clarification :

I understood LAn is pronounced LAAN

Mi (me as in MEET or MIT)

Please confirm MEET or MIT for correct translation.

Thanks and awaiting an early response from your side.

Hello Martine

Thanks for your reply. I am herewith attaching a JPRG file titled
"Milan Translation .jog" which has the translation of your son's name
in Hindi. I hope you like it.

I have translated it as Me (as in english Me) + Laan

Please forgive me for troubling you with the exact pronunciation, but
hindi is a language in which words are written just as they are spoken.
So for writing your son's name it was very important to know how he
pronounces it. Also, tattoos are permanent so I couldn't take any risk
on wrong spelling.

In case you have any doubts, feel free to post a follow-up to this reply.

Wishing you and Milan loads of luck, peace and happines from myself and
everyone here in India.

Warm Regards
