    Red face How do you spell my name?

    Hi dear sir/ms
    My name pronunciation is /hu:mæn pu:r amini/
    The question is, how do you spell it?
    Someone write it: 'Hooman Pooramini'. and some others 'Houman Pouramini' and so on...
    Thanks for your helps.

    I am not a teacher.

    I would spell the first name Hooman. There is a problem with the first syllable of the second name. 'Poor' and 'Pour' don't have the right vowel sound, and any other way of representing it would introduce a [j], as in the word pure, which isn't present in your name. Perhaps Poohramini would do the trick.

    People should spell your name as you spell it.

    You often see different spellings for foreign names. Like Mike, I would use the one you use.
