Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thank you,


  • At a guess: アシュトシュ?

  • There is a mangaka called tosh and he writes it in Japanese as とっしゅ. Maybe sounds better this way.

  • I don't know how the name would be pronounced in its native language, so an IPA transcription would help. Going by how an English-speaking person would expect it to sound, I would say アシュトッシュ.

  • @Kurausukun I don't know what Indian language Shilphi Singh speaks, but I think <Ashutosh> might be pronounced /ˈəʃʊtɔʃ/.

As Nothing at all has posted in comments the correct spelling would be A-shu-to-shu in katakana. アシュトシュ.

From my first semester in Japanese it was taught that foreign names always used katakana characters whereas native names always use hiragana/kanji characters.

  • thanks for ur answer....so which on is correct アシュトシュ or アシュトッシュ ??? Commented Jul 11, 2016 at 14:26
  • The first one is according to my instructor. I showed her your question. Currently sitting in my third semester class.
