    my first name in Russian...

    Is my name writable in Russian? If so, how would it look? It is Alicia.

    (and, I know this is a Russian website, but is my last name German or something, could you tell me if you know what it sounds like? Its Bamman)

    Что ж, я слышал три варианта произношения этого имени по-русски.

    Алисия

    Алишия

    Алиша

    Первый кажется мне более благозвучным.

    Фамилия наверняка звучит Бэммэн или Бэмман.

    Если прочесть фамилию по-немецки, тогда она прозвучит как Бамман.
    Я так думаю.

    Не Бэммен?

    Точно не Бэммэн, никогда не видел безударных э в транслитерации английского.

    It's most likely "Бэмман" or "Бамман".

    Да, обычно сохранят суффикс -ман (с буквы А, а не Э).

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Спрашивалось, как звучит фамилия, и как пишется имя.
    Я так думаю.

    what I meant was, if anyone knew, what background my lastname might come from, but I said it didnt have to be answered.
    and my name in Russian would be, Алишия Бэмман or Алишия Бэммен? it is pronounced- UH-LEE-SHAH BEH-MAN , Alicia Bamman.

    I'd suggest Алисия, this spelling.

    Then it must be Алиша Бэмман.

    Unfortunately, no.
    But... this spelling is more... habitual and understandable for Russians, and more traditional.
    It is pronounced "Ah-lee-see-yah".

    It seems to me that I did't write how you pronounced it.
    I just wrote how Russians pronounced "Алисия".

    (I pronounce my name uh-lee-sh-uh, but alot of people think my name is Ah-lee-see-yah, as you said) Okay, different people have different ways of saying things, and pronouncing. But my name is not Russian, so It would make sense that it sounds slightly different in Russian

    Алисия is not Russian too.
    I just was talking about traditions. For example, the English name Kate was always pronounce КЭТ (not Кейт) in Russian (in literature, and so on).
    Алиша just looks and suonds quite strange.
    We also pronounce Shakespear as Shex-peehr.
