they call me -- Kiisu!

On my new black belt, as seen here, it has my name transliterated into Japanese kanji katakana characters (thanks to rosalind_wang for the correction). I'm told by a reliable source on Facebook that my first name actually is pronounced "Kiisu" -- which makes sense, as there's no "th" sound in Japanese. (A problem also encountered by my Italian relatives....)

If I ever find myself in need of an SCA name, I know what to use (assuming I don't just use my Boogie Knight name of Krad the Obscure....). *chuckle*
