Hanko for old family name 2019/4/12 22:39
I would like to create a hanko for personal use and would like to use an old family name that is pronounced Chiba, just like the city in japan. I did some simple translating, and came upon the following characters (I hope that it shows up properly in this forum):

t

Would this be appropriate to turn into a simple hanko?

Thank you so much!

If you know that it is the same characters as Chiba Prefecture, then you got it right. tB

I would guess that most (95+%) last name Chiba is written t.

But there are few that are written H, , n, etc. all pronounced chiba, so it may be worth verifying.

Are you perhaps trying to make one by yourself instead of ordering/buying one from a professional hanko dealer? If so, I would suggest you chose a more artistic design than the one you posted. But if it's going to be hand-carved, I'd say that the crookedness would automatically be artistic, and also work as a signature which hanko is all about.
