    Confused Help: Manga name

    I am having issues involving my protagonists name and I need help. The problem I am currently facing is that I want to make a custom name as my character is unique and I would prefer it if his name added to his image. The problem I am facing is that I am looking forward to in the future evolving my manga for Japan and as a result I want it to translate well. I am not too familiar with Japanese and I'm not quite sure how it would work. I am looking to combine mystery with distance or music but I do not know how it would translate to kanji and if it is possible given the rules of the language. I would be extremely delighted if I could receive help from this community as most of my skill lies in the art and plot of my manga. Thanks in advance for the assistance and/or guidance I receive following this post. I'll check back often

    I don't think that for it to go to Japan the name would need to be in Japanese, unless it is really important to the plot that the meaning comes across to the readers easily. But I think it's really good for characterization, this kind of concept.
    Then, I'm also curious how that name would be now. I can ask for my japanese teacher how you could use those for a name :]

    Hi! Can you tell me in details the characteristics (attitude, etc) of your character? I think I can help in giving him/her the name and the kanji.
