English term or phrase: martiska
it's a child's name, I'm looking for the correct translitteration in italian.
umberto fasolato
Russian translation:martishka
Explanation:
or martyshka - that's how you would write this in latin-based alphabet. It is not a name, but a term of endearment, sometimes used for a child, particularly an active and mischievous one. It means "small, cute monkey", and originates from the scientific name for a small type of monkey (marmoset)

martisca


Explanation:
I don't think you can transliterate it into Italian because of the "sh" sound etc.

Is it a child's name?
a marmoset, a small monkey?
