I was wondering how you would transcribe Feuz into Japanese.

The word is pronounced like "Foyts". I am thinking it would be フォイツ? Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.

PS. I am using this to help out a friend that can't speak Japanese :)


If this name is of German origin, then yes, eu is usually transliterated as オイ. フォイツ sounds reasonable to me (well, I only have limited knowledge of German).

But Feuz may have other readings in other European languages. See this.
