    My name is Freja (j is pronounced with a y sound” and I’m trying to figure out the best way to render my name in Katakana because I’ve seen it a few different ways while searching. They include:
    フレア
    フレーア
    フレヤ
    フレーヤ
    フライヤ
    I figured it was worth getting feedback and see what others think. Thank you.

    Perhaps you could upload an audio sample of you saying it. I would vote for the elongated sound. If the Y sound is distinct use フレーヤ, if not use フレーア.

    I can’t upload a sample now but that’s good advice. I think I could get away with フレーア
