Hey. Can anyone translate: 惇 (よてと) to me?It's scribbled on an n64 controller on ebay and i wanna buy it, but i'd like to know what it says first.
From google translate: Honest (good luck)
That actually says "Makoto" (まこと), it's the previous owners' name. He wrote the hiragana after it because that kanji is used for a bunch of given names in Japan and has dozens of different readings. The meaning is basically as >>614892 said.
>>614894>>614892Fantastic, thanks guys.
>>614894Isn't Makoto a girl's name?>a real live Japanese girl gripped this with her sweaty hands
>>614972It's gender-neutral, like a lot of Japanese names, and the gender is implied sometimes by the kanji used to write it. In this case the kanji is also gender neutral.
>>615188its a trap
