English term or phrase: Nathan
my name
nathan
Arabic translation:Naathaan "ناثان" or Naataan "ناتان"
Explanation:
These are the forms of pronunciation known in Egypt. The "th" is like "theatre".

If you are looking for the Arabic transliteration of your name as it is pronounced, it would be:

نثان with a "kasrah" under the ن, although that is still an approximation. Some may suggest نيثان. That is possible too, except it may be pronounced as Neethan in this case.
