Question Gaga nėNa'vi pelė'u?

How can I say "I love Lady Gaga" or "Lady Gaga is my favourite singer" in Na'vi? Can I translate the word Gaga? like other people do with their names? sorry for my bad english

Well, it deliberately doesn't mean anything, so I wouldn't think so.

"(Lady) Gaga" is some sort of proper name, so imo it shouldn't be translated. You could try to onomatopoeicly morph it into Na'vi, wich would result in something like Läėti Kaka.

([fė]tute/[fė]rolyu alu) Lady Gaga yawne lu/sunu oer. ([this] woman/[this] singer named) Lady Gaga is beloved / likeable to me.
