Kanji Help

Anyone know the proper Kanji for “husband” and “father”?

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I had my kanji translated by a pen-pal friend in Malaysia to be sure. Regrettably I haven’t talked to her in a very long time, but I’ll drop her a note to see if she would mind translating it for you and sending it to me. (It would be in Chinese)

    Thank you yes, if it’s not too much trouble.

    Chinese may be more apropriate for what I’m designing – I’ll probably end up looking at both Japanese and Chinese caligraphy before I’m done.

    Can I wander by and see them at some point?

  5. beccaj says:

    Yes. I am not especially certain of my skills, though, so I will ask for you tonight at my Japanese class. A.Havill would also be a good resource. His Japanese is perfect.

  6. alchemist says:

    Thanks, I’d apreciate that.

    I’m trying not to overload Havill at the moment – I think I bugged him a lot early on, and don’t want to annoy the shit out of him. *grin*

    I’ll ask my friends tonight. Or better yet, I’ll try to catch Seikawa-san (he IS our Mktg Dept in Tokyo) before he leaves this week.
