    ろばーと、ロバート、呂婆都、露婆斗
    maybe second kanji one better than first? point of finding kanji version of foreign name (there's nothing set in stone unless you were NAMED in kanji to start with e.g. asian decent) is choosing kanji characters that has pleasant meaning....
    that said, I could only find 1 kanji for "baa" which is 婆 which mainly means old lady or grandma in Japanese (maybe it has differnt meaning in Chinese? I want to know...)

    You can also use the name's meaning instead of the pronunciation.

    Turns out your name comes from Germanic, 'bright fame'.

    明男 [Akio] or another version of it, 昭雄 [bright man/bright hero]

    Or you can pick the 'fame' or 'noble' meaning and do a research. (:

    Good idea! @[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] I think 昭雄 is a nice name!

    My name is also Robert and I use 英輝 (Hideki)

    英 - hero (also England)
    輝 - radiance, shine, sparkle, gleam, twinkle

    And you are not an Idiot. I also don't like my name japanised in Katakana:
    ロバート (Robaato - engl. pronunciation)
    ロベルト (Roberuto - ger. pronunciation)
