Any rules for a suffix on english words?
Since Japanese doesn't have consonant endings (except for 'n', of course)
How do I end the name I'm trying to transcribe? Names like Eric or Robert...
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
A non-Japanese name that ends in a consonant is transcribed using the -u kanas, and in some cases the -o or the -i. The Japanese language, being moraic, lacks any syllable coda, as you mentioned above. The -u and -i sounds are implicitly silent when they come at the end of a word.
So some examples would be:
Notice with the last one-o is used. In general words ending in "t" use the "to" kana.
