English term or phrase: transliteration of the name HANSON
I'm trying to figure out how to best represent my name in the estrangelo script, and I don't know whether its normal to show the vowels or not for a foreign name. Should I spell it 1) heh noon simkath noon, 2) heh alap noon simkath noon, 3) heh alap noon simkath alap noon, or some other way? Thank you very much.
