Dear sir
I need help trying to translate my mothers name into Hindi I'm trying to attempt to get her name do a tatto her name is Orvilia soto please help

Hello Richey

Thanks for the question and also for taking interest in getting a
hindi tattoo. Since hindi is a phonetic language, the sounds of words
determine their spelling. Hence, I need to know exactly how you pronounce
your mother's name.

Is it pronounced :

Or (as in Orange) + Vill (as in Village) + Eeya

So (as in Sofa) + To (as in Toast)

Or does it have some other pronunciation. Since it's a tattoo,
I can't take my chances with the pronunciation.

Kindly reply back with the precise pronunciation for correct translation.

Thanks & Regards
