    uhm... there really is no russian Th sounds so jonathan would look, not so good. but Jon is джон i guess if u want it, it is. джонатxан... but really, it does not look good. maybe, you can get like your initains, for example if ur name was Jon jacob jingle hymer schmidt your tattoo would read д.д.д.х.с...just a thought.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    I think it would be Джонатан, but wait for a native to come here.
    Сюда нужно смотреть. И слушать, что я говорю.

    Considering both of you don't speak or are Russian, why would you want to get tattoos of it anyway?

    Anyhow, "Jonathan" transliterated would look something like this:
    джонатан
    But that looks pretty stupid. It comes out something like "Dzhonatan."

    джонатxан
    remmeber that in the name 'jonathan' the h is silent. its not like you actually pronounce it "Jonat Khan" so i wouldnt stick the 'x' in there. make sure its right before you put it on your skin for life.

    as for the guy who wants all those names into russian, why not just learn the russian alphabet and do it yourself. its not that hard.

    Maybe it's just an exotic-looking status symbol thing. The other day I saw some guy on MTV wearing a CCCP t-shirt. That was a few minutes before I shot myself in the head.

    Don't ask me why I was watching MTV in the first place.

    Сэм, Сэмьюэл (или Самуил), Сэмьюэл ?Харкус, Аки, Аки Росс.

    Jonathan will be Джонатан, no doubt here.

    Yes, like "чайка по имени Джонатан Ливингстон" or "Джонатан Свифт".
