"Susan"

Write your name!

Use the alphabet below to spell out your name in ancient Egyptian.  Instead of writing from left to right, try writing vertically -- from top to bottom.
 
Draw a cartouche around it to finish (see example to the right), or add the word for "man" or "woman" at the end!
 
Don't write any silent letters:
SARAH becomes SARA
 
Use the sounds not the spelling:
MICHAEL becomes MYKAL

At the end of your name, you can write the symbol for MAN or WOMAN.  That's all there is to it!
