I want the name Jordan to be translated and then "Cathy's Superman" to be translated. I wasn't sure if there was one for names but I wanted to give it a shot! Thanks in advance.

@Region Philbis,
Sorry I apologize for not mentioning the language. I would like it translated into Latin if at all possible..

@JC-Superman,
The Latin Vulgate Bible uses the word "Iordan" for the river Jordan.

As for "Superman", there is no exact translation of that.
You'd have to go with something like "Vir Superior".
That would make "Cathy's Superman "Vir Superior Catherinae"

Is that Region negated by too much Kryptonite ?

@George,
Wouldn't that be "homo superior"?

like from the david bowie song.

Anyway, having "homo superior" as a tattoo would surely raise some eyebrows.

@chai2,
Both "homo" and "vir" mean "man".

Generally, " homo" is used in the sense of man as a human being and "vir" is
used in the sense of man as opposed to woman or child.

I'll bet it would.

@George,
I 'm not an expert on this;
I defer to your expertise,
but I was under the impression
that "homo" meant "same"
in the sense of "the same as man"
or
"the same as us" or "the same as we are" ?
Again, I defer to your expertise.

@OmSigDAVID,
It does mean "same", but in Greek.

@Region Philbis,
I actually have a Kryptonian font and know the language pretty well. I am just obsessed with Superman. Anyway I believe it would be.. "Chahty'sh Shuhpehrmahn." LOL! No lie that is modern Kryptonian..

I hope you'll be monitoring this site for any requests for English-to-Kryptonian

Is that the Eastern Dialect ?

I remember seeing the first episode of Superman on TV,
with the rocket headed toward Ma & Pa Kent 's farm n crashing into it,
when it first came out. I 'd have liked to have a videotape recorder back then.
I wish I had videotaped that episode; better yet, get it on DVD.
(That was contemporaneous with Wild Bill Hickok starring Guy Madison n Andy Divine.)
I had a fairly well developed collection
of Superman Comics, Superboy Comics, Action Comics with Superman in them.
I still have quite a few of them from the 1950s,
but not in pristine condition. In 1953, I built a house up in a tree
in my backyard, and went up there and read Superman Comics, along with others.
