Default Spelling Of My Name.

I took the time to translate my name from celtic to english to na'vi, which is Vawmpay (vowm-pie). My question is, should it have a ' in it? The ' represents a glottal stop more than a break between words, so if you don't glide the m and p together, is it necessary?

I think that you should leave it that way.

Putting ' into this name/word is actually, in this case, illegal, since none of the words have the ' when they're alone.

Yeah ' is a bad idea. Like in Na'vi you'd have to cut air, Vawm'pay would be very difficult to spell.

If you want to enhance your nick in Na'vi go for an ejective.

Vawmpxay would work just fine.

Ah, but pxay is not a word like pay is, so it stays.
